STAFFORDSHIRE FIGURINE Rare Pair Christ and the Woman of Samaria Victorian
Item Details
Description
This is a beautiful and very hard to find matching pair of Staffordshire figurines of
Christ and the Woman of Samaria, shown in Victorian Staffordshire Figures, Book Two.
This is really a very rare and unusual example of Staffordshire pottery figure. It is impossible to find something like them
The figurines are circa 1855.
The figures have many fine details including attractive facial features
They are original, antique figurines and show all the obvious signs:
1.) Note typical flaws such as firing lines, glaze frizzle, bumps and pitting
2.) Paint is uneven like the hair.
3.) Shows fine brush strokes on the details.
6.) Never two figurines are painted the same.
These are very large figurines. The figurines stand 17 1/8" tall and they are 7 1/4" by 5 3/8" at the base.
The figures are in good condition. There is some crazing that is normal for those figurines, as well as, some gold paint loss.
There are a few a small hairlines but some of them looks like are made during the firing.
There is some glaze damage to Mary's drape
Please refer to the pictures

Staffordshire figures and animals were made by many different potters and factories and were rarely signed. English pottery figural groups were made during the later part of the 18th Century. They were potted from simple two-piece press molds. Once dry, the molds were placed together and thin rolls of clay were inserted to seal the seams inside. The next step was to make a small hole, usually on the base, so that air was able to escape during the firing process. After the first firing, the figures were painted with underglaze colors and then dipped into a liquid glaze. Once this process was completed, the figures were then painted with enamel, over glaze, colors and any gilding required and then fired a final time. to the deposits of clay left in the molds, the average mold's life would not last for more than 100 figures without severe loss of quality. This is one way to tell the age of the figure, the cleaner and crisper, the earlier it was produced in the mold's life. The more often the mold was used, the less the quality of the figure produced.
