Decorative religious figures were immensely popular among the Victorian lower middle class, both Protestant and Catholic, and over 200 examples representing the Old and New Testaments are featured in this well-illustrated volume. An overview of their production is followed by a more detailed exploration of the subjects and stories they represent, and a catalogue summarising their size, manufacture date and rarity.
