A Wedgwood porcelain tiger and deer figure group
by John Skeaping (1901-1980)
stamped Wedgwood Etruria England, J. Skeaping
20cm high, 34cm wide


Wedgwood commissioned Skeaping to design a series of 14 models of different animals, among them this Tiger and Deer, (in the late 1920s Wedgwood suffered direct effects of the Wall Street crash). Only 10 models, including this Deer were eventually put into production. Skeaping's models emphasised the angularity of the subject in a distinctively contemporary manner.

Skeaping was one of the leading artists of the twentieth century, he also produced powerful bronzes and wood sculptures, sculpture being a major part of his work from 1920’s onward. He was briefly married to Barbara Hepworth
