A Royal Worcester figurine of Faust and Margaret, listed in their catalogue as Class 2/42. It was modelled by William Boyton Kirk, introduced in 1855. Both are studying flowers which the Margaret is holding, doubtless a present from Faust. Exquisitely modelled and painted, the detail is exceptional, especially that for the flowers which are tiny.
All Worcester figurines of couples are modelled separately as two figurines, both modelled together is very unusual. The Worcester stamp is impressed underneath, but no puce stamp with shape number or date code, indicating that this piece was produced circa the 1850s. The figurine is in excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or crazing. All fingers and extruding pieces are pristine. The gilding around the base shows some light rubbing, as shown.
Size: about 32.5 cm high, base 16.50 cm diam, weight 1.6Kg Please look in my store for more Royal Worcester items. Please view all the photos before purchasing, they complete the description. While I do my best to reproduce the true colours of the pieces, they will vary slightly from system to system, and in actual viewing they will vary under differing lighting. All white spots are light reflections.
