An antique early Staffordshire flatback pottery piece that is circa late 1700s or early 1800s. It features a man standing next to a woman who is seated. His arm is around her shoulder. One of his legs is bent at the knee and appears to rest on the background behind the two people. They are under a leafy and floral garland archway. She holds a matching wreath on her lap and there is one at her feet. There are two birds (partridges?) - one on either side of the garland overhead. The wreaths have a red ribbon at the top, the birds appear to be partridges and suggest a Christmas time theme.
The garland is green and a faded mauvy red. The clothing is white, dark blue and pink - the man's vest is pink. The stand against a red/brown background. The birds are white with yellow chests and pink wings. There are tiny tiny cherries on the woman's dress in a few places. The man and the woman both have long dark hair.
Measures 7" high and is 4 1/2" wide. It is just shy of 2" in depth.
These pottery pieces made in England between the late 1700s and early 1800s were called “flatbacks" because they were not three dimensional - the backs were flat while the front had depth and the design.
This antique flatback pottery figurine is in fair antique condition with repairs visible on the back and a crack on the gentleman’s shirt/vest area on the front. Item’s price reflects condition.
