I always have a bit of a soft spot for old Staffordshire Figurines,
This one is utterly charming and an unusual one. It is a large scale model showing a cow drinking at a stream. She stoops down to drink the water - and her little white calf watches here.
This is a lovely example and given its age (it dates to the late 19th century) it is in remarkable condition.
There are no nasty chips or damages (I think that the horns might have been restored - the horns are commonly chipped at the tips on these models).
The group stands on a raised and more chunky oval base painted with green grass. A stream runs to the left
Dimensions: about 8 inches wide and with a height of 6 1/4 inches.
Weight unpacked is 1.2 grams
Very cottage chic - and would look fabulous on display in a country cottage o or rustic bed and breakfast in the dining room.
A fine example - have listed another couple of these creamers and figurines from my collection.
Fair price for such a fine example.
Of course - being sold as a genuine antique 19th-century example - it is certainly NOT a modern reproduction piece.
In the UK, this will be posted next day special delivery to make sure the figurine is tracked and fully insured in transit.
