An extraordinarily rare and fine bust of Father Theobald Mathew the Irish priest and temperance reformer. This fine bust to our knowlage has never been illustrated or recorded in any book on Staffordshire pottery, we believe it could be unique. Beautifully titled in gilt script capitals . Purchased in New York USA this bust was probably made for the Irish/US market and sold as a souvenir during one of his visits to America or taken to the  USA by Irish immigrants.
