Sighted at the NYCF was this extraordinary Staffordshire figure.
Pearlware figure of a large cow on the stand of Elinor Penna at the New York Ceramics Fair.
What colorful, naive appeal! All those US folk art collectors chasing large weather vanes formed as cows would have done better to pursue this gorgeous cow. It did not have the stratospheric tag associated with weather vanes on the US market! I believe it left the Ceramic Fair tucked beneath the strong arm of its new owner.
To help gauge size, note that the picture hanging behind the cow measures about 17" in width.
