VICTORIAN STAFFORDSHIRE DOG & CHILD FIGURE. Circa 1860
This really charming Victorian Staffordshire Figure of a young girl, with her arm around the neck of a rather large Red & White Dog, dates from circa 1860.
It is an excellent example of the naive portraiture of the Staffordshire Potters, given that the Dog is so much larger than the Child.
There are no cracks, chips or restoration. Minor paint flakes.
A similar Figure is illustrated in A & N Harding’s Victorian Staffordshire Figures 1835-75 Vol II Page 149 Figure 2253.
Height: 7.5 inches (19 cm)
