About

A good decorative appealing figure of shepherd returning home after locating a lost sheep from his flock.
This figure was very popular in the early 19th century as it reflects a spiritual ethos of the time with a warm story to tell as it illustrates the parable from Mathews and Marks Gospels.
This figure is a very fine example with good modelling and strong well applied enamel colours.

Literature: Myrna Schkolne , page 268 shows a similar figure in her book People, Passions, Pastimes and Pleasures;Staffordshire figures 1810-35
