Large Staffordshire Pair
Large Staffordshire Couple
This is a Staffordshire figural group on steroids. Either that or it depicts a contemporary submission to the Guiness Book of Records for the tallest coupe.
While standard Staffordshire figures come in at approx 30cm tall this pair tower over those. By the dress I think we can probably suggest that they are a country couple – his beard doesn’t seem to suggest city dweller to me.
The piece is in good condition but does have some firing cracks.
