A superb antique Staffordshire figure in pearlware dating to the 1820’s. The pottery figure is titled ‘BIRDS.NEST’ which has been impressed to the base and highlighted in overglaze black enamels. A young lady stands holding a bird in her left hand, her right to her side, wearing a ribboned lace cap, bodice, and skirt, in her apron she gathers some eggs. This example is very well modelled with a typical full flowering bocage feature, the condition and enamel colours are exceptional, it is in mint perfect condition having no damage, repairs, or restoration, a truly special piece.
