RARE 19C Antique English Equestrian Horse BRANDY Spirits Barrel IDEAL FOR LAMP
Brand Royal Staffordshire
Attributable to England (late 1800s-early 1900s) this antique Ceramic Barrel Bar -Back Dispenser is absolutely stunning.
This fantastic spirits barrel dates to the late 19th Century. It is vividly hand colored under glaze in an Equestrian scene.
This is probably the largest of the antiques spirits barrels I've had the pleasure of buying and selling.
It would be perfect converted into a lamp! In face I have two that I'm having made into lamps now.
These are relatively hard to come by as many didn't survive over the years.
Measures: 11 3/8" tall x appx 10 1/3” wide x 6 1/2" deep.
Condition: Excellent for age, no chips, no cracks and little crazing. A couple of marks here and there and wear to the gold trim at the base.
