English Pottery Figure of "Summer"; C 1770
Please refer to our stock # p444 when inquiring.
A charming example of an early English figure, probably from the Yorkshire area. The figure was decorated with colored glazes, predating the underglaze enamels. It primitively depicts a figure holding a sheaf of wheat, with "Summer" in a plaque which forms part of the front of the base.
The figure is 5" tall and is in superb condition, with the only blemishes being in the making, which are a tiny chip at the base (most of it glazed over), and 3 specks on the back where the glaze bubbled or did not adhere properly.
