Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The vintage musical figurines are attired in long coats with waistcoats and/or shirts accented by rough knotted ties, all accompanied with casual trousers; the trousers to one character bears patches to the knees and a walking stick suspended from his coat pocket.
All the men are playing their instruments apart from one hatless character who has an elevated arm; it is believed this man is conducting the performing quartet.
Each musician features a different brass or string instrument: violin, cello, tuba, French horn and trumpet.
These models are embellished with chased decoration replicating the details of the fabric, instruments and facial features.
The figurines are surmounted to circular swept weighted bases which are ornamented with a paving stone design to the upper plateau.
The solid silver underside of three of the table ornaments retain the original leatherette covering; each model can be fitted with a green baize lining if required.
The hallmarks struck to the underside and surface of each base includes:
