This is a rare figurine of the military hero Sir Charles Napier. 

General Sir Charles James Napier was an officer and veteran of the British Army's Peninsular and 1812 campaigns. He was later a Major General of the Bombay Army, during which period he led the military conquest of Sindh, before serving as the Governor of Sindh, and Commander-in-Chief in India. 

Here, he is shown in a heroic pose. He is wearing a dark cobalt blue coat - with over-glaze enamels picking out other details of his uniform. He has white epaulets, an orange sash, a pale lemon yellow bicorn hat in his hands. In his other hand, he carried a pale pink cape and long sword. On the front of his coat, he has a dull gold star. 

The modelling and colouring of Napier's face are more realistic than on similar subjects. 

To his right are a small wall,  canon, and a pile of grey-coloured cannonballs. 

The figure has been entitled on the base with the subject's name painting in gold gilding - this has been rubbed away over nearly 170 years.  Like all my other Staffordshire models, this figure is a genuine antique piece and being sold as such. It is NOT a later Chinese reproduction. 

This figurine is in excellent antique condition - with no damages of any kind. It is 11 1/4 inches in height. 

This is a rarer figurine - and in such good antique condition. This is reflected in my asking price - which indeed is a most fair one. 

A painting showing the Admiral in a similar pose and uniform, that was painted by John Simpson in about 1841 - is in the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland. 

UK POSTAGE ONLY. It will be sent with Royal Mail Special Next Day Delivery - so that it can be insured in transit to you. This will be £10 and assigned at the checkout.
