I always have a bit of a soft spot for old Staffordshire Figurines, and none more so than these pretty examples with feature little figures standing beside a cow.
This one is utterly charming and featuring a little cowhand or cow herder - it is much rarer than other models with feature milkmaids or ladies.
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).
A little fellow in his bright blue jacket stands next to a cow which has stopped at a stream for a drink of water. This one is so finely modelled and has great detail and delicate paintwork. You can see all the details on the costume of the little boy - even his little stick or switch that he carries to keep the cow in check.
The group stands on an oval base painted with green grass. A stream runs to the right.
Dimensions: about 6 1/2 inches wide and with a height of 6 1/2 inches.
Weight unpacked is 700 grams
Very cottage chic - and would look fabulous on display in a country cottage 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.
