Pick of the Week: Buyer’s 20-year search for walking stick stand is over

Paul Comolera (1818-97) was one of a series of prominent sculptors who travelled to work in Stoke-on-Trent at a time of political upheaval in France.

His name first appears in the Minton records in October 1873 and is listed up until 1876. During those three years in the Potteries he produced some of the factory’s finest animal models, ones that lent themselves perfectly to majolica glazes.

Some, such as the heron or the peacock, are well known. Others, such as this rare walking stick stand offered by Denhams (20% buyer’s premium) in Warnham, near Horsham, on February 28, seldom appear for sale.
