This puzzling Staffordshire figure can be found in P.D. Gordon Pugh's "Staffordshire Portrait Figures" on page E438, Figure 253. It is well colored, and 8-1/2" high.

He believes it may be a theatrical figure. My theory is that she is a giantess, to be able to hold a deer with antlers in her arm!

This is his description: "Standing, wearing a plumed hat, bodice and flounced skirt. She holds what appears to be a dead deer underneath her right arm." Mr. Pugh has classified this figure as "Rare" by which he means he has seen or heard of ten or under.

This figure is in excellent condition, with the only fault being an "in-the making" firing flaw at the back just below her skirt.
