Pearlware figures with beards or moustaches generally depict gentlemen from bygone centuries, but figures portraying everyday people of the early 1800s don't have facial hair. The reason is that from the 1700s till about 1850, facial hair was a no-no. A clean-shaven "open" face symbolized an open mind----the quintessential ingredient for an enlightened gentleman. The invention of cast steel in the mid-1700s vastly improved razor blades, and new shaving gear prolipherated--all of which made shaving easier. And of course Georgian gentlemen were very into pampering themselves--remember the dandies of that era?
Among the tens of thousands of Staffordshire figures of everyday folk that I have examined, I can recall but two portraying men with facial hair. Both were made by the "Sherratt" pot bank and both have moustaches!
As for facial hair, it rebounded into fashion in full swing in the second half of the nineteenth century. This gives me comfort. Surely the taste for minimalistic interiors too will die, and antiques will come back into vogue!
