Page 161 says that the young lad and girl were made during the Orzel era.
Do they have any stamps on them at all?

Manos had his figurines looked at today by a close contact to the Brown family. He was told that the Fortune Teller was one of the first complete Cameron Brown design figurines. His wife, Dorothy, sat for hours in a long dress so that he could perfect the way the skirt fell. This was made in the early 1950s.

The first two or three figurines ever made had real ear-rings but they were so small and fiddly he soon abandoned that and drew them in instead.

Regarding the Boy figurine above, it has come to my attention that there was only one made by the Browns and it is in their collection, the rest were made for Hobby Ceramics classes.

These moulds were brought in from America by Chris Brown for Hobby Ceramics. Dorothy did paint a single one which Cam has in his cabinet. They were only ever sold to Hobby Ceramics and painted by their customers.

I will now remove the young boy from the Titian Gallery.
