“DeVegh designed many of [Scammell’s] Art Deco figurines, as he was also to do for Lenox, and the Scammell ones ones are quite a bit rarer than the Lenox ones. The company also made a great number of commemorative items, particularly plates. The overwhelming majority of their pieces, however, are lower level dinnerware items.”
