Murder, history, animals either exotic or domestic or country scenes all formed subject matter for the hugely popular Staffordshire group. They weren’t wide as they were meant for display on the narrow mantelpiece of a humble dwelling. They were a mass produced form of “folk art” created by the people, for the people and reflected their social obsessions from Queen Victoria’s spaniels to a model of a house where an infamous murder took place. The royal family’s love of the highlands spawned a revival in all things Scotch like this kilted horseman wearing a swagger tam o’shanter.
