Here is something you might find interesting. This little plaster group of figures was purchased by my parents back in 1949 while we were all on a trip up to the Black Hills. I'll bet they were even made in the USA!......something that would be unheard of nowadays. At the Dayton show I mentioned them to my good friend Don Mertz as since I met Don quite a few years back every time I look at these four guys I think of his carvings.
They stand about 6 inches tall. I've included back and side views photos of them in the Gallery along with a close up of the faces. Maybe you'd like to try your hand at making a set of your own.
