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.
