Early 19th Century Miniature Pearlware Staffordshire Stag Circa 1820 Georgian
A very well modeled and colored example of a miniature recumbent stag from one of England's Staffordshire potteries. Circa 1820 this George III period animal figure has crisp modelling, vibrant coloring and the earlier hollow base with gorgeous high gloss pearlware glaze. Staffordshire pottery animals of this small size that are decorated all around are highly sought after.
Size: 2.75" (7.5 cm) high by 2 9/16" (6.5 cm) wide by 1 6/16" (3.5 cm) at the deepest base point.
Condition: Sadly he is not perfect, he has been rutting!! He has historically lost the tip of one of his right antler. The bocage is in generally in very good condition with only a small old chip to the bottom left lobe of bocage. There is an over painted chip to the very tip of his nose, extremely difficult to see; identified via touch .
One of THE most attractive colored examples that we have seen.
