The Scuffle/Contest group also recently added to John's site is interesting in that it is unmarked. From the look of the group, you might have expected a WALTON mark on the reverse.
Did Walton make both this group and John's group? To answer that would require a wild guess. Truly, there is no way of knowing, but I suspect that Walton did not make John's group. Firstly, I have now seen two of these unmarked Walton-type Scuffle/Contest groups, and neither one shouted Walton at me. The enamels are just a tad different. Also, the WALTON mark is actually integral to the base, so I would expect to see it on all versions that emanated from the Walton pot bank.
Bottom line is that the mark is a whole lot less important than the quality and condition of the figure group because Scuffle/Contest groups are notoriously difficult to procure in good condition.
Also fresh in cyberspace this week is this figure of St. Peter, newly added to Aurea Carter's stock.
After the long cold-winter and a dearth of figures, the frogs in my garden are heralding spring and new figures are coming onto the market. So rattle your piggy banks and take your pick, while the selection lasts!
