Several of the new additions to earlystaffordshirefigures.com have helped me fill in blanks in our knowledge base. For example, I have long owned the single figure of the season Summer, seen below. The figure is of dazzlingly fine quality, and she stands well on her own. The garlands on the base are akin to "Sherratt'' signatures, so I confidently attribute the figure to "Sherratt." Perplexingly, she has been the only "Sherratt" Season known to me, but I have firmly believed that "Sherratt" would have made all four Seasons, not just one.
The little reading boy below has long been an attribution riddle. I have always been sure he was made by John Dale--the facial features are so like those of many other Dale figures--but I lacked evidence that would stand up in court!
