A particularly attractive bocage group with the spill holder formed by the trunk of the central tree. A small deer is gazing up at the woman.
There is virtually no post-manufacture damage to this piece. One has, however, to remember that these Staffordshire figures were cheaply made for the masses and perfection was not always required for them to be put on sale. As can be clearly seen, there is a deep firing crack to the neck of the deer. Despite this, the figure was decorated, fired and sold. There are gaps in parts of the bocage but these are also glazed over and were there when the piece was first sold. Please take a close look at all the pictures.
To the top of the spill holder/tree it measures about seven inches. At its widest the base measures about four inches.
