This fantastic little cow or calf figurine was made by the famous English potter Basil Matthews. It has condition issues and is offered as-is. One horn has been re glued. The very tips of the horns are brown and look like they are not glazed.
There is some crazing which is not unusual in older vintage pottery
The figure is decorated with lovely flowers in pink and blue . Beautiful details with large eyes and a wonderful face. It is hand painted, signed and is finished in high quality gloss glaze. 2-1/2-inches tall, 3-3/4-inches long and about 2-inches wide.
I believe this is one of Basil Matthews older pieces. It is signed on the bottom, it is quite heavy for it's size and also it has the older red sticker on the bottom. Quite collectible.
I have more Basil Matthews figurines available.
Each piece is completely made by hand, and each piece is signed.
Since they were all hand decorated, no two are exactly the same, so each one is unique. His figurines are very highly prized and becoming harder to find.
I appreciate and thank you for taking the time to look. Have a wonderful day.
