A very nice pair of Staffordshire Sheep-form Spill Vases (Ram and Ewe), dating from the 1860-1880 period. The sheep and the vases are on a molded and enameled base and there is a small branch of bocage coming off the vase portion. Both sheep have painted faces. They are not marked as to the pottery, and one has a couple of old hand-written labels. The “L” on the bottom of the ram is, I think, an artisan’s mark.
Each piece is 5” high to the top of the vase, and the bases are approximately 4” x 2 ½”. Very fine condition with no chips, cracks, breaks or restorations on either vase.
