These must be the most adorable of Staffordshire figurines.

This is a pair which shows The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) and the Royal Princess out for a ride on horseback.

They are fabulous items to pop on each end of a fireplace in a Victorian sitting room.

As you can see in my photographs, they are certainly beautifully modelled.

The horses' legs are very fine - and I can't believe that this delicate pair has survived about 140 years with no damages.

These are genuine antique examples - and certainly not reproductions.

As a pair - these examples are very rare ones.

The Prince of Wales is just under 8 inches in height and has a width of about 5 1/2 inches. The Princess is also 8 inches in height - and has a width of 6 inches.

It was difficult to capture all the fine details of this lovely pair in just five images - so more images can be sent on request.

The figurines are in the most excellent antique condition - with no chips, cracks or any restoration. Just some little surface cracking to the glaze here and there - commensurate with age - and only to be expected on figures of this great age.
