A large Derby porcelain figure of a recumbent stag lying on a grassy mound with unusual blue-green reeds rising around his belly. A large floral bocage stands at the rear. Decorated in bright enamels. Red painted mark to the base, c.1820.
It measures 19cm (7 1/2") high, 16.5cm (6 1/2") wide and 8.3cm (3 1/4") deep.
In very good condition: some fine restoration to the antlers and horns; the porcelain seems predominantly ok underneath so this will be linked mainly to a repair/s rather than fabrication. The tip of the left ear and also to the tips of a few of the leaves on the outer edge of the bocage have also been excellently restored. A tight glaze line across his front left ankle. The enamels are good and bright.
