This is a lovely genuine antique Staffordshire figurine dating to the end of the 19th century, probably about the 1860s. It is a nice large size and looks great on display.
I currently have the pair to this model in my online shop that faces the other way and forms a marching pair for display on each end of your mantlepiece.
It shows a man seated on a white horse. I think that he may be an ancient Highland huntsman - as he has a deer slung over the shoulder of his horse in front of him. He wears a tall feather bonnet and a kilt.
The figurine is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks .
The paintwork to this piece is minimalistic - with just his little face and boots painted with colour.
There is a little craquelure to the glaze, but quite minor in nature, and there are also remnants of gold dots to suggest dappling on the horse.
A nice large piece being some 15 inches in height. This one is a great display piece - but not such a rare example - so this is reflected in my lower asking price for it.
Sadly the legs of the horse would make this piece too fragile to send outside of the UK. The figurine would be very carefully packed and sent to you with Parcelforce24 - this would cost about £10 and applied to your order at the checkout.
