This is a large antique Staffordshire figurine featuring the Duke of Cambridge on Horseback. 

George Willaim Frederick Charles, second Duke of Cambridge (1819 - 1904), was a field marshal and commander-in-chief of the army. He was the son of Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge, the seventh son of George III. He commanded a division in the Crimea and was present at the Alma. At Inkerman, he was "grazed by a bullet" and fell ill and his devoted wife rushed out to nurse him. He was promoted to field marshal in 1862 and was commander-in-chief of the army from 1856 to 1895. He was humorously known as "The Umbrella Duke" on account of taking an umbrella on parade instead of a sword when the weather was bad.

This figure depicts the Duke riding on horseback. I have another much smaller variant pair for sale in my store which shows the Duke with his wife but facing in the opposite direction. 

With its Crimean connection - this large model must date to 1854 / 1860s. The model is titled on the base to the front in gold gilt letters. This model has very attractive colouring applied. 

It is a rarer large figure measuring 14 inches in height and with a width of 9 1/2 inches. 

 As you can see in my photographs, this antique flatback figure is beautifully modelled. It is in generally good condition given its age - it has a couple of little old cracks confined to the base section on the back (lower left-hand side) - as photographed. These issues are not evident on display - and are not so disfiguring. I have taken this into consideration with the low pricing of this fine piece. 

This is a  genuine antique example - and certainly not a modern reproduction.

Unpacked the model is 1.9 kg in weight.

This figure is confined to UK postage only. Due to the size and weight, I will have to post to you with Parcelforce48. This is a tracked service - and will cost £10. This will be applied at the checkout
