GENERAL INFORMATION. Royal Worcester is a British-based producer of fine china and porcelain. The Royal Worcester United States marketing division asked Baston and Lance to produce a series of three pewter sculptures for offer as Bicentennial limited edition commemoratives. Baston designed a potter, cabinetmaker and blacksmith and the series was placed in fine stores around the country. 500 sets were sold and, in 1975, Baston added a Clockmaker to the group. The sculptures are large (approximately eight inches high) and heavy, buy Baston's design work is memorable for its composition, detail and graceful form.
These are the Ceramastone versions of these figurines.
