Antique Lead Musician Figure

Item no: 1586

An antique lead figure of a musician in traditional dress holding a flagon and with a stringed instrument by his side. This unusual figure is typical of the type of 'rustic' character celebrated by John Cheere and others in the 18th Century when pastoral scenes were very popular in garden landscapes. However, the quality of the casting isn't quite up to 18th Century standards, there are visible lead seams for example, and this is probably a 19th Century figure and also possibly European since there is little record of large scale leadwork being produced in England in the 19th Century.
