Mantelpieces decorated with ceramic figurines were a mainstay of the English middle class during Queen Victoria’s reign in the mid-1800s. The potters of Staffordshire made painted and glazed pottery sheepdogs, exotic animals and other figurines, which are still being collected today. Worthologist Audra Blevins spoke with Lisa Vickers of V & V Antiques at the Atlantique City antique show about Vickers’ collection of Staffordshire figurines.

    This video was very informative. I was impressed by your Worthologist, Ms Blevins. She seemed very friendly, approachable, and knowledgable on this collectible. Ms Vickers was very kind to allow us to take a look at the various pieces she had available for sale. Both ladies provided excellent guidance to Staffordshire figurines collecting. I look forward to more of these videos!

    Dear Audra: I enjoyed your talk on Staffordshire figurines. My husband bought me two adorable (supposedly) authentic Staffordshire spaniels for Christmas; they seem to pass the test on the few things I found regarding authenticity; however, they both have what looks like a stylized “6” or a cirlique of some type on the bottoms (a different size on each dog). What is this mark? Are these authentic? I hope so, b/c he paid a bunch for them! Thank you so much for any help you can give me.
