Burrows Gallerye Series
(also Museum of City of NY)
This series represents five famous persons connected with both the distant and much more recent history of New York City.  This lovely set represents, in the eyes of many, some of Prescott Baston Sr.'s finest work.  Two issues were produced along with a base to display them.
Children's Band Because of World War II, Prescott W. Baston produced this series to resemble a popular German set of children in a band.  It never became popular, however, and only 200 sets were produced.
Children's Pairs Mr. Baston produced his first limited edition issue with Sidewalk Days, the first of several children.  These became very popular.  The series was produced from 1978 to 1982.  All sets were limited to 10,000 and were fully subscribed.
Civil War Series The war that almost tore our nation apart but ended up by solidifying it, is depicted by the Bastons in a set of seven colorful figurines.  They include representations of both sides of that conflict including generals and common soldiers.
Dickens Series  Charles Dickens was an author much admired by P. W. Baston.  This extensive series representing some of his most famous characters has always been popular.  The series includes a house and a mounting base.
