Two similar Staffordshire pottery models of Leopard Hunters, mid 19th century, one sparsely coloured and gilt, the other well coloured and gilt, 27cm high Cf. A.&N. Harding, Victorian Staffordshire Figures 1835-1875 (Book Two) [1998], p. 74, figure 1909. Provenance: Property of Hermione, the late Countess of Ranfurly (1913-2001) and thence by descent. The Countess of Ranfurly (1913-2001) came to public attention with the publication of the first volume of her diaries To War With Whitaker 1939-45 (Heinemann 1994) in which she details her trials and tribulations following her husband, a lieutenant in the yeomanry regiment, the Sherwood Rangers through the North African campaigns with his valet Whitaker. After the war and with a house to fill she assembled a notable collection of mid 19th century Staffordshire figures, many of which were photographed for Commander Gordon-Pugh's seminal work on the subject.
