Staffordshire Pottery Chicken Egg Crock White Hen on Nest realistically modelled & coloured antique circa 1870 7" high

A 19th century English Staffordshire pottery polychrome enamelled chicken egg crock dating from the Victorian period, circa 1870. This very decorative antique piece made in two halves shows a white chicken with well modelled feathers sitting on her eggs in a yellow and green painted nest on a simulated woven basket . These items are also known as a "Staffordshire Hen on Nest".

The figure is realistically modelled with simulated feathers and her head is turned to the left. Her head is realistically coloured with a red comb and brown head feathers, there is some gilding. The chicken top half lid lifts of to reveal the basket base for storage, originally for fresh eggs. The base has a embossed size number 6.

She is in excellent antique condition no chips, cracks, nor restoration. There is some flaking to the red enamel on her comb, there is wear to the gilding and a firing tear internal to the base.

This is a great piece to add to any collection of Staffordshire figures,  Hen on nest or simply for a great feature in a kitchen.
