Set of Four English Pottery Lions Mask Furniture Rests.

Description

An unusual set of four 19th century Staffordshire pottery furniture rests or supports, of square form moulded on three sides with ‘Lions Mask Handles, pearlware decorated with overglaze enamel colours.
Furniture rests were used to keep heavy ‘carcass’ furniture such as chests, coffers & blanket boxes clear of potentially damp flagstone floors.
*Occasionally these are mistakenly called ‘window stops’, for holding a sash window open slightly, a totally impractical and unworkable idea.
Circa : 1830
Height : 2⅜” (6cm)
Width : 3¼” (8.3cm)
Condition: Typical, fairly extensive chips and wear & tear from use, some wear flaking to enamel colours. No restoration.
