A Seated Turk
Stock No: 000819
Height: 4 Inches / 10 cm
Reference: Possibly Unrecorded
A lovely small seated Turk possibly representing ‘Artabanes‘ sitting cross legged with a pipe to his side, wearing Turkish garb and turban. There is a manufactured hole in his mouth and hand that would have held a length of pipe connecting to the hookah on the floor to his side. This figure is in mint perfect condition. We cannot find an illustration in any book but the figure is similar to one found in Audrey Dudson & Alison Morgan’s, Dudson Staffordshire Figures c.1815-c.1865, page 40, Fig 49, it also has the recognised blue parsley clay, representing smoke, coming out of the hookah pipe on the ground.
I would highly recommend a visit to the Dudson Centre Museum in Stoke-on-Trent.
