Staffordshire Pottery Group The Prodigal Son, 1850

glazed earthenware with coloured enamels
35 × 17 × depth 6 cm

Murder, history, animals either exotic or domestic or country scenes all formed subject matter for the hugely popular Staffordshire group. 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. Many contemporary artists have subverted them and this group of the New Testament parable of the prodigal son is ripe for some same sex reimagining.
