Rare Wittman & Roth Earthenware Shakespeare Figural Wall Plaque C1870’s.
Impressed marks W & R, L
This mark was thought for some time to be for Wayte & Ridge of Staffordshire who produced pottery figurines. It is now thought to be Messrs Wittman & Roth Importers of London 1870-1896
Measures approx 16.5cm by 7cm by 39.5cm
Couple of slight original kiln cracks which can be seen on the reverse side of plaque as you can see in photos and a chip underneath the platform he’s standing on otherwise in amazing condition for its age
After extensive research I’ve not found another one so I’m assuming it’s quite rare
Will be well packaged and sent via Royal Mail signed for service
