A 19th Century Continental Majolica Figure, modelled as a Fisherman, resting on a log and a basket full of fish at his feet, standing on a square base. Dimensions: 30 cm high. Condition: two small chips near the base. Marks: moulded diamond-shaped mark with initials W &R L*.
* This mark has previously been attributed to the short-lived Wayte & Ridge factury, but according to Geoffrey A. Godden these initials were used on Continental wares sold by Messrs. Witman & Roth, Importers, of London, c.1870-96. (see "Encyclopaedia of Pottery and Porcelain Marks" by G. A. Godden 1991, page 652, 4041).
