horses - Beswick figurines

Beswick figurines. From the establishment of the Beswick factory in Longton, Stoke on Trent in 1894, animal figures of a very high quality and at an affordable price to the collector with a modest budget have been represented in Beswick sales catalogues and advertising material.

The production of Beswick figures can be divided into two periods.

From the 1890's to the mid 1930's the Beswick factory produced, in the Staffordshire traditional form, a combination of tableware, decorative porcelain, majolica and a range of figures and animals such as generals, milkmaids, mantle dogs, cattle and horses.

Critics of the time described their models to be of a higher quality than those of their precursors.

Unfortunately for collectors, Beswick followed the early Staffordshire tradition of not marking their figures and as a consequence, it is very difficult to identify the names of the modellers, designers and artists from that period until the 1930's. more...
