Compton Art Pottery – Seated Child

Compton Art Pottery – Seated Child “Years Honour Riches” – stock #81317

A charming original Compton Art Pottery figure of a seated child writing in a book decorated with typcal painted colours with earthy tones. With the words “Years Honour Riches” embossed on the back of the chair. Most likely originally a bookend and one of a pair.

Designed by Mary Seton Watts (1849-1938) and reminds me of the little cherubs found in the graveyard that surrounds the Compton Mortuary chapel.

Impressed makers mark on the underside.
