Antique agateware saltglaze figure of a seated cat, Staffordshire pottery mid 18th century

Reference: 8354

Dated: c. 1750 Staffordshire England

A rare antique English salt-glaze agateware pottery figure of a seated cat.
The variegated clay decoration is excellently rendered, and the saltglaze has patches of cobalt blue decoration at the ears and the body. The figure is a rarer and larger version than usual and is especially attractive without the usual addition of a captured mouse hanging from the mouth.

Dimensions: 3.50 inch wide 5.00 inch high 2.50 inch deep

Current Condition Well executed restoration to crack stemming from the base rim.

Provenance: Private collection Oxfordshire England
