Victorian clay commemorative figures started production in Staffordshire, in the Midlands of England, during the early 19th century, when potters began to produce ceramic figures that chronicled all the important characters and events of the day. These included royal and military figures at significant moments in their careers, as well as performers, politicians, clerics, sportsmen, explorers, and other folk heroes of the day.
