Derby Silver ladies

Although this is my first post, I have followed this and other forums here for some time. I am amazed at the wealth of knowledge and information that is shared here, and hope that someone will be able to help identify a pair of silver figurines. They are 12 inches tall, and each is marked "DERBY SILVER CO DERBY CT QUADRUPLE PLATE", along with the Derby logo of an anchor in a circle. They are numbered and are very nicely detailed. The one with the hat is #5001, and the other is #5000. Despite many hours spent searching the web and our local library, I have been unable to find anything like them. The maker's mark indicates that they were made before 1898, when Derby merged with International Silver. I think perhaps they are examples of Aesthetic Era silver, possibly part of a commissioned four seasons set, but that is strictly conjecture on my part. Any information will be much appreciated!

No one has any thoughts on these? I would be grateful for any ideas on where or how to research these further.

Thanks!

I wish I could find more....all I can find is that Derby sometimes did commissioned work....and perhaps that's what these are.

Thank you, Linda! It appears the ladies have decided to retain the secrets of their mysterious past a little longer...
