This is another one of my fine late 19th century figurines made at one of the Staffordshire Potteries.
This finely modelled group features two drunken gentlemen making their way home from a night out at the pub. It is a comical scene - both stagger about and hold each other up. The name of the figure group is the Parson and the Clerk (or Nightwatchman). The Parson holds a bottle of ale and the Clerk holds a lantern.
It is in lovely condition with no damages - they figures stand on a base with a mottled "marbled" brown and green base - and scrolls highlighted with pink lustre to the front. The base is concave and it has a little area of craquelure towards the edge, as photographed.
There is a twin branched tree stump to the back of the figures - which acts as a support to the model.
My figurine measures: 8 1/2 inches (21.5 cm) in height. The width of the base is 7 inches (18 cm). The depth is 3 3.4 inches (9.5 cm).
It is just over 1 kg in weight.
A great display piece - would look great in a county pub.
