Wedgwood Tiger with Buck designed by John Skeaping circa 1927. This model of a tiger and buck perfectly evokes the art deco era.

Stylistically modelled as a tiger carrying a downed antelope in its jaws, set on an oblong base and decorated with a 'Moonstone' matt white glaze. 34cm long, impressed marks.

The figurines John Skeaping produced for Wedgwood were executed in a minimalist yet commanding style, and were very contemporary in the 1920s.

John Rattenbury Skeaping was born in Essex in 1901 and studied at Blackheath School of Art. Eventually he became a scholar at the Royal Academy School and, in 1924, he won the Prix de Rome – a prize that included a gold medal and a bursary for the winner to work in Rome. During his three years in Rome Skeaping married the sculptress Barbara Hepworth.
