Lot 0011A Details

Victorian Staffordshire inkwells and quill holders were popular in the mid-19th century. The potteries worked hard to create examples in all sorts of charming motifs to keep up with the demand, most often including naturalistic interpretations such as birds and their nests, children with animals, or single animals.; In this example, the young girl has on a large feathered hat, as well as a sweet orange dress with a white apron. She is also wearing little strap shoes. She is cuddling a black and white spaniel with a small lamb resting before her. This piece came out of the mold early, so there are finer features to enjoy. It has a thick blue glaze that has protected it for some 180 years.; This piece is in excellent condition for its age and type. There is a tiny manufacturing fault along the seam on the right side; however, this is a kiln effect original to the piece. There also is a small flea bite on the bottom edge of the oval base. There is a small glaze loss on the back that was apparently caused by a burst bubble of clay in the kiln.; It measures 4-5/8 inches high and 2-1/2 inches wide at the base.
