Mary Dana and Sue Ingersoll Scott, Pass under the rod (1862)

This set does not appear in any known Bamforth catalogue, which suggests it is probably from either 1911 or 1913, the 'missing' years of the catalogues. The mounts and labelling are slightly different from Bamforth's usual styles, but the images, backgrounds and models are all recognisably by Bamforth.
