The two little figure above are the best two of the five Edge & Grocott figures I have recorded. Both are pearlware, but colorful enamels were not applied. In other words, these figures missed the last stages in the production process, but perhaps this was deliberate. Each figure is clearly marked EDGE & GROCOTT on a banner on the reverse.
The very first Edge & Grocott figure I encountered was in the home of the late Griselda Lewis, an amazingly knowledgeable collector who generously shared what she knew with me and many others. Griselda told me that she had spotted her figure on a shelf in Jonathan Horne's stock, and she had immediately recognized it at a distance as Edge & Grocott. Sadly, Griselda passed away last year, so the figure--the unpainted pearlware putto at the top of this article-- came to auction recently, and I hope it has gone to an appreciative home.
As for who the men are behind the Edge & Grocott name....well, you can read all about them in Staffordshire Figures 1780-1840, Volume 1. And please contact me if you come across an Edge & Grocott figure.
