Identifying Artisans from Late 1970s and Early 1980s


Recommended Posts


I have stumbled upon a magnificent collection of miniatures and have already identified some pieces by members of the guild, including Barbara Davis and Mary Grady O'Brien. I have some items that are signed by artisans but I haven't been able to work out what their names are based on the signature. Can anyone here help me? I would be most grateful.

I wish I could insert pictures from my phone in this post but in lieu of that, here is my best effort at describing the signatures and pieces they're on....

Dining room side board/buffet/server/breakfront with shaker style legs and a curved front signed "WAE or WGE 1977" and numbered 611-0047

Settee with needlepointed seat with a yellow flowers, Queen Anne style legs. Signed "Miner Sept. 1978"

Dining chairs, tables, and other pieces in Queen Anne style signed "Mason 2-80" or other dates in similar fashion (four digits representating month and year of manufacture).

Many thanks in advance for all your help!
