Terracotta Figures

THE HOUSE OF ANTIQUES
Matched Pair of 19th Century Terracotta Indian Souvenir Figures
A rare opportunity to own a matched pair of late 19th Century hand crafted terracotta figures, in the form of Indian servants. These rare survivors would have been bought back from India to places such as the UK in the Victorian era, by service officers and the like. These examples would have been used as token gifts and for general decorative purposes to showcase the well-travelled gentleman of the time. The servants illustrate both the inhouse and external (Haveli) Servant of the time. Dressed in linen with minimal décor, the inhouse servant is without shoes and the outdoor servant is with simple cotton slippers. They both wear respectful head covering known as turbans. These items are rare due to being a matched pair, their size and more importantly their untouched and original condition.
Size in inches: H 10” x W 3.5” x D 3”
Origin: India (Rajasthan)
Period: 1880 - 1910
Material: Terracotta / Linen
Condition: Completely solid in structure and form, Faded in areas due to natural aging. This aging extends on the sections of the linen cloth which are faded and discoloured in sections. The hands show loss as do sections across the bases and other terracotta material (this has been illustrated in the photos provided) Both neck sections show hairline cracks these do not affect the stability or form of the figures. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas in this piece, therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.

Period: 

1880
