Description. Small antique Staffordshire Jesus in white robe with hand painted features on pedestal with gold accents. This Jesus figurine has shoulder length blond hair with a dark blond beard. He carries what appears to be a Palm frond with red berry like flowers on top. The face is well painted with a serene expression and rosy cheeks.
The condition of the Jesus miniature is typical of old Staffordshire pieces with a few inherent kiln flaws and a few stray paint marks which occurred in the making of the piece. These include a black paint spot on the base in the rear of the piece and a stray brown paint mark on the back of the head. Time has worn away some of the gold accents. The piece feels smooth in your hand except for underneath the base which is unglazed and domed. No cracks, chips or repairs. This is a charming and unusual Staffordshire miniature which is not often found.
