Antique English Staffordshire Willam Wallace Figurine
Antique English Staffordshire pottery figurine circa 1850's. Typical period style of popular subject matter of noted highlander William Wallace. The kilted male figure rests on his claymore sword with a shield on his other arm. The Scottish highland lifestyle was deemed healthy and romantic during the 1850's as Queen Victoria herself popularized it( vacationing in Balmoral). The court dictated what was popular among the aristocracy and burgeoning middle class during the Victorian period. These mantle or fireplace pottery statues signified middle class wealth and education even for those that could not afford it from the Staffordshire factory.
Marked: "Wallace" Embossed on front of base
These would make a great birthday for any ceramic antiques expert or as an amazing addition to your unique home decor.
