Lot Details
The Walter Potter "Monkey Riding the Goat" Display, English, late 19th century
the monkey with riding crop and blue collar, is depicted astride a Wiston Park Goat, painted background and contained within a large glazed display cabinet
47 x 38 x 15ins (119 x 97 x 38cms) W.P., B75. According to legend, the monkey and the goat were both mischievous beasts - the monkey raided a fruit shop in Shoreham and the owner threw a bucket of cold water over him. The shock unfortunately proved fatal. The goat came from Wiston Park where no fence or hedge could keep him in. When they finally met their end it was thought suitable that the monkey could ride the goat and keep him in hand in perpetuity. See front cover illustration
