You've been peeking China! Now, come on, back to the object.
Clue think Craven Heifer but a different subject.

Sorry Love, no. Not as famous as him, most active as a book illustrator.

It looks like a white bull so I'm guessing at the Chillingham Bull? No idea of the artist though.

Wendy has it! I am not going to insist on the artist. See THIS for a Wiki article on Thomas Bewick and look at his images. You're right Wendy and it is the Chillingham Bull. See THIS for more information.
Next one?

A quick one for the steam engine buffs. This picture shows one of the Bancroft pistons complete with Stanley's brewing up cup.
What is the name of the other piston?

Should have come on last night - Bewick Lived at Cherryburn (not far from me in one diection) and the Chillingham White Cattle - or should that be Wild Cattle - are notv far in another direction ...

One of the few I could have got, I don't usually get that many of the mystery objects. But I find it very interesting.

I don't think it is Georgie because that isn't a dragon, it's a worm!
