Various earthenware makers from England's Staffordshire region have produced charming hand-painted, human figures since 1740. They are highly collectible today. Prior to 1810, lofty figures were en vogue – including Lord Byron, William Shakespeare, Milton and various gods and goddesses. The lamp shown here features a couple that is a familiar theme in the later Staffordshire pantheon – the man and woman of the harvest. After 1810, figures became more democratized, depicting political and news events, as well as ordinary folk of rural, 19th-century England.
