Staffordshire pottery large scale bust of Princess Charlotte in pearlware early 19th century
Dated: 1820 Staffordshire England
A large very rare and impressive pearlware Staffordshire pottery bust of Princess Charlotte. The figure has a socle base which is decorated with a blue classical urn.
Princess Charlotte was the only child of George, Prince of Wales later to become King. Charlotte married Prince Leopold and was a very popular member of The Royal family. Tragically she died after a very difficult delivery ( 50 hours in labour) and her son was still born. There was a swell of public grief and this tragic tale had later repercussions in the Royal lineage as the baby would have had precedence over Victoria had he survived.

Current Condition Minor enamels re-touched.
