Three Pairs Staffordshire Pottery Quadruped Lion Series

England Ca. 1825

 The Quadrupeds series of Staffordshire pottery is one of the most attractive designs to be produced in transfer ware.. There were several varieties with differing central subject with four surrounding reserves of various animals. The Lion series has Zebra, an ostrich, sheep, goats, moose, horses. These were produced in the 1820’s by I.Hall and some are so marked on the back side. These will be sold by the pair. None have been broken, chipped or repaired but there are some variations in color tone, delineation and abrasions. The prices will vary as to perfection and intensity of color. The price listed is for the best pair. I reduce the prices downward to the least perfect to $350 for a pair (one has an imperfectly fired glaze that is slightly mat, not glassy smooth (10″, all others about 9.75″). Most have some imperfections like normal light wear from use.
