Staffordshire figurine of Tom King on his white horse, with damages, as shown and described below. The figure in 9 1/2" high, 7" across and 2 3/4" deep. The figure of Tom King was most popular in the 1840's.

Damages: The figurine is attractive as displayed, but has suffered some damage in the past. The head has been re-glued and there are fracture lines on the reverse. There is a small chip on the horse's mane and on a corner of Tom's hat. There is very mild crazing in some areas. Please see the close-up photos. Priced with damages in mind.

Tom King was a a highwayman in the 1700's, whose exploits were the subject of many tales. He was portrayed in a wildly popular 1834 novel and in many dramatizations. He rode with another highwayman of the day, Dick Turpin. According to legends, Dick was wild and cruel (but devilishly handsome) while Tom was the Gentleman Highwayman with good manners and a sense of honor.

This figure comes from a private collection. The original owner collected these pieces in the 1920's when Victorian pieces were considered "out of fashion". They have been with the original owner's family, carefully stored and sometimes displayed for over 90 years!
