An antique Staffordshire pottery pair of musician figures modelled playing a bugle and tambourine. This fine true original pair made without bocage depict a standing gentleman holding a bugle to his mouth, wearing high plumbed hat, collared shirt, open jacket, and breaches. His companion is holding a tambourine with both hands, wearing a feathered hat, blouse, apron, and skirt. Both figures have a thick-walled round base with the impressed number 8 to the underside. Possibly made by Enoch Wood, they date to c1820. The female figure is in perfect condition, the male has a professional invisible repair to a clean break of the plume, no losses.
