In 1976, Reed & Barton, the internationally known silversmiths located in Taunton, Massachusetts, worked with some of the country's leading authorities on Rogers Groups and re-created, in miniature, six of the original groups in porcelain bisque, or parian.
According to the literature accompanying each of the figures, "The creation of Reed & Barton's series of six Rogers Groups was a story in itself, one covering nearly three years and three continents before all exacting standards of quality and craftsmanship were met. Reed & Barton's Rogers Groups parians were individually hand-fired, hand-assembled, and hand-finished by top porcelain artisans. Approximately one-third the size of Rogers' original statuary, the Reed & Barton parians are exact copies, authentic in every minute detail, including the lettering". Reed & Barton noted they were particularly indebted to the sculptor's namesake and great-grandson John Rogers for his invaluable assistance and cooperation during the design and manufacturing process.
Reed & Barton selected the following six groups for their first edition of six Rogers Groups:
Weighing the Baby
Checkers Up At the Farm
Coming to the Parson
Each group is marked with a blue ink stamp on its underside with the words "Rogers Group by Reed & Barton Porcelain Bisque". Each is approximately 8 1/4" to 9". All are in perfect condition with no chips, breaks or discoloration. It is extremely difficult to find all six in one complete collection.
Please write with any questions. Shipping is estimated at $40 including insurance, but the winner will be invoiced for the actual shipping charges, not the $40 which is only an estimate. So, please DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY until you receive an invoice. By doing so, you might save yourself a few dollars, as it may even cost less than that amount. But, I don't charge for handling or supplies.....you'll pay what I pay.
Thanks for looking and good luck if you decide to bid.
