Product Description

A very nice quality and condition Staffordshire Pottery Flatback statue that was made to celebrate the peace agreement between Ireland and Britain in 1882.

The figures are the Angel of Peace standing over the seated Hibernia (Ireland) and Britannia (Great Britain), shaking hands. The angel holds a green sash in both hands, Hibernia has a harp and Britannia a small shield bith the union flag on it. The green sash reads: PEACE ON EARTH GOODWILL TOWARDS MEN. Condition is very good. The group was made to commemorate the signing of the Kilmainham Treaty, which was an informal agreement reached in May 1882, between Liberal British prime minister William Ewart Gladstone and the Irish nationalist leader Charles Stewart Parnell. Whilst in gaol, Parnell moved in April 1882 to make a deal with the government, negotiated through Captain William O'Shea MP. The government would settle the "rent arrears" question allowing 100,000 tenants to appeal for fair rent before the land courts. Parnell promised to use his good offices to quell the violence and to co-operate cordially for the future with the Liberal Party in forwarding Liberal principles and measures of general reform. Gladstone released the prisoner and the agreement was a major triumph for Irish nationalism as it won abatement for tenant rent-arrears from the Government at the height of the Land War.
