This remarkable and rare large figure depicts two large figures of a stag and doe facing each other either side of the central tree trunk triple spill vase. A young man playing a horn with sheet music on his lap sits in a nook of the tree trunk, his pink hat resting on a short branch above him and at his feet sits his dog on its hind quarters and two small lambs.
