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.
