A Wedgwood, basalt figure of a Siamese cat. This figure was modelled, for Wedgwood, by Ernest Light. He designed a series of animals in the early 20th century. These were then produced by Wedgwood around 1915. The first series had glass eyes and then a second series was produced in the 1930's with moulded eyes. This one is from the first series, with the glass eyes, and it dates from c.1915. It is a charming figure and it is very naturalistically modelled. It is well potted, with a smooth finish to the basalt, and it is in excellent condition. It is marked, to the underside, 'WEDGWOOD'.
