Giuseppe Garibaldi

As popular affection for this rugged Italian revolutionary increased in England, various trinkets depicting Garibaldi started to become commercially available.

Most notable were the china Garibaldi figurines, produced in Staffordshire in the early 1860s, which represent Garibaldi in numerous guises and poses.

As well as figurines, Garibaldi also appeared on plates, cups and tankards and his name was adopted by pubs and taverns across the country.
