Offered here is a mid 19th century pair of Staffordshire pottery figures by John Hall, depicting Jobson & Nell, dating c.1840 to 1850. The figures are set on square bases and are finished in underglaze and overglaze colors. The cobbler and his wife are both seated on stools; Jobson is working on a shoe while Nell offers a jug and cup (of what we wonder?). Mostly overlooked, a dog is peeps out from under Jobson's stool, and a cat from under Nell's! Another secret: depending on how you position them, they look very loving and content or like they are arguing! I placed their faces together for the last picture, but they won't sit that way. I had to do it! Condition: excellent; light crazing from age, and a bit of wear to the Cobbler's hat. No chips cracks or damage. Very charming, perfect small mantel pieces - rarely offered as a pair!
Dimensions : Nell is about 6 3/4" or 17cm, Jobson is about 6 1/2" or 16.5cm. Bases are about 3 1/2" x 3 1/4" square or 8.9cm x 8.3cm.
