Reference: Myrna Schkolne Staffordshire Figures 1780 to 1840 Vol 3, Page 242, Similar to Fig 133.11

 

A large and imposing early nineteenth century figure of the Dandies with overglaze enamel painted decoration, c.1810-30. In Myrna’s words,  “Dandy figure groups ooze personality” and this example is no exception. Although some of the groups utilise closely similar molds, slight differences in placement or painting impart unique characteristics that allow each group to exude its own personality.
