Sebastian Miniatures

At the conclusion of the Society's Annual Meeting Prescott W. ("Woody") Baston, husband of Society Secretary Margery Baston, will give a brief presentation on Sebastion Miniature collectables and how they relate to Wayland. The Sebastian Miniatures business was started in 1938 ≠≠ and Woody and his dad were the only sculptors. A major focus was "Americana" (historical figures and more) ≠≠ and it became a national "collectable" in the 1970s and 1980s (when collecting was popular). A book was written on Sebastians at that time. Sebastian Miniatures have been compared to Hummels ≠≠ and have been called the American version.The last studio for Sebastian Miniatures was right across the street from the Grout≠Heard House Museum, in their home! Stay awhile after the meeting to hear Woody!
