Fraser Art Limited
Fraser Art Ltd. was an associated Bosson manufacturing company that produced the PVc (polyvinylchloride) products.
The "Briar Rose" models were created by Ray Bossons in February, 1973, during a period of illness and recouperation. Mr. Bossons decided to make a caricature model of their pet Shetland pony. From his original idea other similar whimsical animal caricatures were modeled and finished in a soft red tone to resemble rosewood.
The "Ivorex" plaques were originally made by Arthur Osborne of Faversham, England, who died shortly after World War II.
Ray Bossons purchased the assets of the Osborne Company in 1971. The company was left dormant by W. H. Bossons Ltd. until the introduction of a limited range of plaques, figurines beginning in 1980.
