A group figure of William Shakespeare’s Othello & Iago. The two men are standing on a titled base with raised black capitals, Othello is wearing a turban and long robe, he has a sash over his right shoulder and around his waist, Iago is wearing an ermine lined cloak with a banded tunic and pantaloons, holding a plumed hat in his left hand, his right arm raised and pointing to Othello’s shoulder. This is a rare group in fantastic condition. The illustration is by artist Solomon Alexander Hart, he was a British 19th Century painter who was born in 1806. He painted this picture in 1855 and it could well be the source for the figure. Professional restoration to Iago’s finger. Made in Staffordshire, England c1855.
