- The first title to describe Victorian religious figures in the context of their times- A comprehensive illustrated catalog of well over 200 figures with an assessment of their dating and rarity- Individual descriptions of the figures in their biblical or historic settingsA multitude of colourful and naive biblical and other religious pottery figures found their way into 19th century Victorian homes in Britain. They were bought by tradesmen, shop-keepers, clerks, teachers and the more skilled working class people. This book tells the story of these Staffordshire pottery figures, which sold in their thousands to stand on the mantelpieces of Christian families, both Protestant and Catholic.Three chapters provide a social history context: the religious background, an assessment of who purchased the figures, the Victorian home and how it was furnished. The final four chapters review the pottery figures themselves, which are based on the Old Testament, the New Testament, relevant religious themes and portraits of preachers. A catalogue of well over 200 figures in full colour with an assessment of their dating and rarity completes the book.This is the first comprehensive record of Victorian religious figures placed in the context of their times.
