The majority of early Staffordshire figures fall into price code A. Yes, most can be bought for under $1,000. Very many of them fall into this bracket because of condition. All those figures lacking limbs and bocages can make very interesting and affordable collections, but they are not particularly desirable. But among the price code A figures are some of the little gems that I treasure the most.
Similarly, the little musicians below.
We are all familiar with large figures of Elijah and the Widow, and a fine pair deserves a place in any collection. But have you noticed the tiny pair in the stock of David Boyer and Ivan Mears?
