This is a lovely genuine antique Staffordshire figurine dating to the end of the 19th century.
It is a nice large size and looks great on display.
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.
Sadly the legs of the horse would make this piece too fragile to send outside of the UK.
I also have a pair of these Staffordshire figures in my Iconic Edinburgh online store - with horses and riders facing in opposing directions.
