STAFFORDSHIRE STORY

By Rose Madder

A two decked pulpit has a sleeping vicar above and the clerk reading the Lessons from the desk below. In front of each is an open bible.

It is said the potter was inspired by a note in the Staffordshire Advertiser that read “At the sale of an orthodox clergyman’s effects lately deceased, his library was disposed of for three pounds and the liquors in his cellar for £276. The letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life” dated 2 February 1800.

The figure is copied from a Chelsea Derby model.
