A very scarce early 19th century Staffordshire pottery double ‘Rural Pastimes’ groups on one large rectangular base, the two groups connected by an arch of bocage/foliage. Pearlware decorated with overglaze enamel colours.
Date (guaranteed) circa 1810-15
Height : 8″ (20.5cm)
Length : 8¼” (21cm)
Condition (guaranteed) : A large section of bocage is missing from the centre. Both groups have been detached from the base, there is extensive restoration to the base, mostly at the back (the front edge is good and shows the typical light crazing). Overall the figures themselves are in fairly good order with just minor restoration to some of the instruments, swans etc, etc.
I suspect that the right hand female figure might have a replacement head…
* (A very unusual group like this, in average condition would be in the region of £1,200 to £ 1,500)
