Description


A Victorian Staffordshire flat back figure depicting red riding hood against a tree trunk ca 1880. The trunk is open to the top allowing the item to be used as a spill vase. The figure also depicts an animal which presumably is supposed to be a wolf, however it looks rather like a fox or dog. Interestingly potters often had to go from just written descriptions of animals if they had never seen one, which is why there are some very odd looking flat backs of lions and other wild animals!

Condition


Minor paint losses particularly to red riding hoods cloak. Minor losses to shredded clay on tree. Crazing to the base. Typical firing flaws with some minor splits in places. Some chipping around the base about average for this type of figure.

Description


A nice example of a Georgian facet stem goblet dating to the late 18th Century around 1780. The stem is diamond cut and the cutting extends into the base of the bowl. The foot is conical and has a rough snapped pontil. The composition is English lead glass. Facet stem glasses became popular following the opaque twist series from around 1780 to 1800. Facet stem goblets seem particularly scarce, this being just the second I have seen in many years.

Condition


Plenty of wear to foot rim. Some very slight fritting to the stem. Average usage wear to bowl.
