A lovely figure of an English sailor standing on a titled base with raised yellow capitals “Britains Glory”. The sailor is standing cross-legged, his right hand resting on his hip, his left arm leaning on a cannon, wearing a boater, neckerchief, shirt and trousers, a belt around his waist. An unusual colour pallet has been used to decorate this figure, a light turquoise ground in overglaze enamel. This colour is found on a number of rare figures, it has become recognised as emanating from a particular factory, now named ‘The Turquoise Factory’. This figure is in very good condition having no repairs, or restoration, just minor enamel flakes and a small chip to the underside of the base, c1850’s.
