This gentleman is playing a hurdy-gurdy, and the soft palette of the colors of his clothing are quite a bit more soothing than the sound of his instrument would have been! I’ve seen a different example of this Staffordshire figure marked “Flemish Musician,” so I think the name is accurate. He stands about nine and a half inches tall. The handle of the hurdy-gurdy has been reglued, and some tiny glaze chips have been touched up with paint. There seem to be other repairs but it’s impossible to tell what they are because the figure was sprayed all-over with a gloss varnish when the repairs were finished. The repairs are very well done and add to the attractive look of this figure.

A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
