This group was made at the Dillwyn & Co. works in Swansea where for a period of time an opaque china such as these figures were made. Further, a similar model of pointers, on an identical base, was sold at Philips, Cardiff, in 1988 and another marked example can be seen at the County Museum, Truro.
