Catalogue No: F036

£ 325.00

Description:

Uncle Tom with Eva by his side standing in a boat, the water below them on a raised gilt lined base. Crudely decorated and naively modelled, the affection these characters of the seminal book had for each other is apparent in this wonderful figure. 

 

Circa 1852

 

Approx - 12 inches (300mm) tall.

 

In very good original condition throughout save small firing crack below Eva's left elbow and to the rear.

 

For a similar figure see: Pugh page B206 and A. Harding Victorian Staffordshire Figures  book 1 page 300
