A large creamware group of two putti, Enoch Wood, circa 1835.

The twin winged figures grapple over a solitary heart lying at their feet, both shown struggling inconclusively over their ‘prize’.

One is depicted wearing a puce robe and floral garland across his chest; his naked opponent with a quiver slung over his back, 42cm.

Enoch Wood (1759-1840) was a member of a well known Staffordshire pottery family.

He began his working life as a modeller, like his father; eventually becoming a successful businessman.

He produced Staffordshire figures and many other types of stoneware and earthenware, trading initially as Wood and Caldwell and later as Enoch Wood and Sons.
