Antique English Staffordshire Pottery Figure of Autumn as a Lady and Child,
Probably Walton,
Circa 1810-20

The figure, on a flat hollow rectangular base which is encircled with a thick brown-red line, depicts a well-dressed lady holding a basket of fruit in her left hand with a small child at her side reaching for the basket. In her right hand is a large bunch of freshly picked grapes.

Behind the figures is a small leafy scroll, of a type which Myrna Schkolne calls unusual, almost experimental, and suggests (page 312 see below) that this may be an early type of bocage. On page 90, figure 155.7, of Staffordshire Figures1780-1840: Family, Friendship, Play & Classical subjects, the author illustrates the same levy scroll to the reverse of a figure of Spring marked Walton and notes that "The leafy scroll occurs on other figures representing seasons but on no other marked Walton figures".

Interestingly, often the figures of the seasons where fruit is shown as here are named Summer, although logically, fruits generally become available towards the Autumn.



Provenance: Old collection label attached to base with date of Aug 6 1939 & no. 87
