Hind with Tree Stump


Wood, Enoch (Factory)


Pale cream earthenware with lead-glazed tinted slightly blue

Pale cream earthenware, press-moulded, and covered with lead-glaze tinted slightly blue, which has become crazed and stained pale brown due to burial; the underside is concave and has a ventilation slit under the figure. The elongated oval base has an undulating edge at the front, and a tree stump at the back. The recumbent hind is orientated towards the viewer's right with its head turned to face the front. Its left foreleg is extended and its right bent up.


History note: Found with other figurs and fragments beneath the pavement on the south side of Burslem old Town Hall (opposite the Leopard Inn) during Mr Bemrose's excavation in April 1938; exchanged with other fragments for a copy of Rackham's Catalogue of the Glaisher Collection, 1935.
