This figurine was labeled in masking tape on the bottom: Mary Todd Lincoln, Greenfield Estate ‘68, HM, cast. Is it a candle holder?
I do not know it to be Staffordshire but I thought Staffordshire collectors might know what it is. I know nothing about ceramic figures, and I wonder who the maker of this figurine was, and if the masking tape labels on the bottom might have been accurate.
I can’t find anything like it, (half clothed) outside of a meerschaum pipe c.1860s. The marks are an x, a debossed 67, and I can make out hand scribed numbers 887.
I just thought it was quite interesting and would like to know more.
