Origination:
This is we believe one of the prototype 1st run badgers made as a trial before the main run was commissioned for the Country gentlemen Collection. He is initialed CR and dated 96 which would tie in with the introduction of this figurine.

Condition:
Excellent
.

Commentary:
CPP seem to use a lighter almost a wash effect colouring for their prototypes which we have seen before. It enables them to test out the level of paint detail required and more than likely the timing needed for painting when on the commercial line. 
You can see the much finer detail of the figurine itself on the prototype which ultimately is not seen on the later ones like the badger figurine alongside him.
Whilst Cinque Ports Pottery Country Gentlemen figurines are collectors items in their own right, these prototypes are extremely rare and normally never seen for sale except when a company ceases trading which is exactly what happened with CPP. All figurines were then sold including their prototypes
This Badger is ultra collectible.We were fortunate indeed to have come across him.

There’s just something about these highly tactile & eye catching figurines from CPP which make you smile when you see or especially handle them. Their Badger, dressed in traditional hunting green is a splendid but solid example of how CPP managed to capture the very spirit of their characters. He makes an impressive addition to an unusual & sadly 
unobtainable from new figurine collection.
