This is a great item for popping on top of the mantlepiece of an antique fireplace in a Victorian interior.
This is a genuine 19th Century Victorian example and is in good condition for its age.
It has no damages or restorations and is also a nice large size for display.
It is 13 inches in height and with a width of 8 1/2 inches.
The flatback figurine is designed to be seen set against a wall - the front is decorated but the back is left plain as you would not see this when it is on show.
Here we have a couple sitting on top of the representation of a clock face (the numbers have been picked out with gold gilt - but sadly some numbers have been rubbed with the figurine being picked up and put down for over a hundred years). This is reflected in my asking price for this example.
The couple is Scottish - the gentleman wears a kilt and the strange item shown on his shoulder - are his bagpipes - the chanter section is shown on his lap. Also, on his lap, you can see his sporran - which is a traditional one made of badger (not that I would condone such garb these days). He has argyll plaid socks and black shoes - and also wears a tall cockade hat.
His sweetheart sits beside him - she is dressed in a pretty white dress which is embellished with tiny flowers.
These figurines with figures on painted clock faces are commonly nicknamed "a poor man's clock" - as it would tell the time and by correct two times in a day!
This is a very nice clean example - it is a genuine antique, NOT a modern reproduction.
