This is a fine decorative piece - and will look great on a mantlepiece or period Victorian interior.
It is slightly more unusual in that this piece was designed to hold a pocket watch or small travelling clock - and so act as a clock. There is a little semi-circular ceramic bracket on the back - to hold your watch in.
It is a nice large size measuring 11 inches in height. It is 7 1/2 inches wide and with a depth of 3 inches.
Unpacked it is 1.1 kg in weight.
Dating to around the 1880s.
The model shows a group of three ladies who are standing beside a fruiting vine. The structure has a pair of confronted birds on the top. It is certainly quirky and a highly decorative piece.
Sadly, there is a very old chip to the side - as photographed. This is not visible when on display. There is a little bit of routine craquelure to the figurine - as you often find on these antique pieces.
If this Staffordshire model had been in tip-top condition, I would have been looking at about £125 for this item. So it is substantially reduced in price to reflect the chip to the side of the model.
