Paper mache rocking horse with leather and pheasant feathers

Minton made twelve of these peacocks in the 1870’s and only nine are known to survive. This example has been roosting in the Walker gallery in Liverpool since 1891. It is made from earthenware majolica and it was modelled in 1873 by Paul Comolera. It was fired all in one piece, which makes it a major technical achievement as well as an artistic one, given that  it is about four feet tall.
