This is a set of fine pewter figures made by The Franklin Mint with a lovely storage and display case. The figures were manufactured in 1974 and 1975. This collection of 13 figures is titled "The People of Colonial America". They portray the men and women of early colonial America in their daily work routines.
Each figure is stamped on the bottom "The Franklin Mint, (Occupation) or title of figure and date minted (1974 or 1975). The figures range is size from 3 1/4" to 4 1/2" tall. The figures also have silver colored name tags in each compartment of the felt lined wooden box. The box is in very good to excellent shape. It is hinged and dimensions are 16 1/2" x 17 1/2" x 5 1/4". There is some very minor wear to the felt in some compartments, but we are mentioning for accuracy.
