Because of abundant naturally occurring coal and clay, the Staffordshire region of England is renowned for pottery. Local ceramic companies made a variety of extraordinary figurines. They began producing these decorative figures during the 18th century, mostly from cheaper earthenware or salt-glazed stoneware.
Eventually, more colors were used, and potteries made figurines from bone china, which necessitated a switch from hand-sculpted figures to those using press-molds. Staffordshire figurines had their heyday during the Victorian era, and began to disappear in the late 19th century, as imported German bisque products were more affordable.
Staffordshire designs included domestic and wild animals, as well as human figures sometimes taken from historic events. At the time, these figures were sometimes referred to as “image toys” or “chimney ornaments.” Those designed as actual chimney ornaments were produced with a flat rear side intended to be hidden when placed against the mantel wall.

During later years the designs became more sophisticated and the figurines became more detailed. Companies like Crown Staffordshire employed artists to hand paint the animals and many became lifelike and highly collectable. This figurine is one of the better ones and artists even employed flowers to enhance the beauty of the artwork. One of the fragile flowers has a missing partial petal which is hardly noticeable....otherwise these pheasants are nearly as good as they can be.
