A good decorative Victorian Staffordshire flatback pottery figure of a Scottish hunter on horseback dating from around 1850. The figure stands on an oval shaped base and portrays the huntsman wearing a kilt and Scottish attire holding a gun and with a deer draped over his saddle. The figure is well painted in bright enamels on a white pottery ground. The figure has a simple gilded line applied around the base and is not marked.
The figure displays well with a small surface glaze chip to the top of the base and with a couple feint stress hairlines through the font and back legs with the customary chipping to the paint.
