The Stoke on Trent firm of Robinson and Leadbeater, who specialised in Parian wares, produced a large series of small busts of famous people during the last quarter of the Nineteenth Century. We have recently acquired a nice group of these - a group photo shown here (the figures are being offered for sale individually). These often represent good quality and well-detailed portraits of contemporary figures.
The group photo shows, from left to right:
Richard Wagner SOLD
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart SOLD
Ignacy Jan Paderewski SOLD
Felix Mendelssohn SOLD
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe SOLD
Alfred, Lord Tennyson SOLD
William Shakespeare SOLD
Robert Burns SOLD
Jesus Christ SOLD
Virgin Mary SOLD
All are marked 'R&L' in an oval cartouche on the reverse. All are in good condition, with just minor faults to two as indicated above.
