1840's Antique Miniature Staffordshire Figure Sheep or Lamb
This is a charming 19th century 1820-40's pre Victorian to early Victorian era tiny miniature Staffordshire English pottery figure of a jolly smiling sheep or lamb. He is standing on a beautiful rectangular green grass plinth, with gold gilt gilded lined detail, and wears a beautiful early thick woolly coat of clay. He is in in perfect condition, and measures 1.75 inches in height x 2.25 inches in width.
His face is a light pink, well painted with a knowing sheep smile. He was found wandering in the Devon, England fields, and is a beautiful little old original iconic staffordshire figure, with no chips, cracks or restoration. These truly miniature Staff pieces are sought out by collectors, and hard to find. He is a real beauty, and has been in our personal collection. There is some early old pencil handwriting on bottom, probably his original handwritten price, as that's how clean he is.
Size: small 1.75 inches high x 2.25 inches wide.
