ANTIQUE PAIR STAFFORDSHIRE FIGURES, CHARLES I & PRINCE RUPERT
Height: 10¼ inches / 26 cm
Stock number: JB7233/117
A matched pair of Victorian Staffordshire figures of two men standing, the left figure with his right hand resting on a pillar with a scroll, his left hand resting on his hip, wearing a plumed hat, doublet and breeches, the right figure with his left hand resting on a gun barrel, his right tucked into his doublet, wearing a plumed hat, doublet and breeches. It has been suggested that this pair of figures portray Charles I and Oliver Cromwell, but it is more likely they portray Charles I and Prince Rupert, who was in command of his army.
