Stock No: 001394

 

Height: 12 Inches /30 cm

 

Reference: Harding Book 1875-1962, Page 65, Fig 4067

 

A fine figure of Gladstone standing dressed in a frockcoat, waistcoat and trousers his left hand holding the lapel of his coat and his right is placed on a pile of books, which rests on a pedestal. I particularly like the attention to detail the decorator has used on the figure. They have even painted a rose flower pinned to his left shoulder. One of the finest figures to be produced in the potteries during this period of manufacture, the marbling detail to the base and pillar being particularly attractive. This figure was made c1880 and is in perfect condition.
