Then on April 8, 2010, I wrote "Our family of figures with gray bases is growing. I doubt you will recall the blog article of March, but we featured a figure of Spring among the small group of gray-based figures. Spring now has a companion: Winter. The bases are formed identically and their size is the same. The collector who owns these pieces hopes one day to have the complete set...so shout if you see any more!"
Here we have have Autumn paired with the lady with the barrel yet again. I am thinking that this was the intended pairing from this potbank. You could probably buy the figures as singles, and perhaps the lady with the barrel was the nearest thing to Summer...so it stood in for Summer. Who knows? Yes, the gray base sometimes is rather yellow, as you see here!
