A great piece of seaside novelty ware made from porcelain by an unknown manufacturer and probably dating from the early 20th century. The piece features the form of a donkey on a plinthe entitled 'Donkey-Barometer, To be put in the air!'. Above the donkey is inscribed 'A present from Scarborough' and then this is followed by 6 lines of comical instructions.
The piece measures approximately 12.5cm tall.
In very good condition with no apparent chips or cracks. One ear may have a very very tiny chip to its tip however it is hard to make out. The tail is a replacement however it was only a piece of hessian string and nothing special. It would benefit from a clean.
