The set of figures each depict a different season-Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter with the name painted on the front of the low hollow flat square bases. The figures are painted in typical Prattware colours. Each base has a brown line to each side other than the figure of Spring.

In the 18th century, the Four Seasons were especially symbolic because of James Thom's four poems, one named for each season. They first appeared as a complete edition titled Seasons in 1730 and became perennial favorites.

In the early 19th century, the poems' focus on landscape made them particularly pertinent because the cult of the picturesque had fashionable folk scouring the countryside for artistic vistas. The Romantic Period of 1800-1830 renewed appreciation of the sentimental component of the poems and a range of decorative objects--including Staffordshire figures--reflected their significance.
