Product Description

An unusual and rare Staffordshire Pottery flatback figure of the goddess Ceres and her daughter Proserpine, in good condition.

Ceres was the Roman goddess of agriculture (from which the name cereal comes from) and provided the abundance of crops in the fields. Her daughter Proserpine was kidnapped by Pluto, the god of the Underworld. Eventually she is rescued, but had to spend 6 months of the year with Pluto, causing Ceres to stop the crops producing during that period and bringing about the seasons.

The goddesses are dressed in a stylised southern european dress, with a large stack of wheat sheaves between them. There are no makers marks on the base.

Size: 20 x 8 x 28cm
Weight: 1166g
