Pair Staffordshire cockerels/roosters

Victorian, circa 1880. Tallest is 11.8ins high, 9.3ins wide, 4.7ins depth. Pair of Staffordshire figures with a pastoral theme which feature cockerels/roosters, stood on a shaped base.
We think they have possibly been matched up together at some stage because they are of significantly different colouration.
