Another email with additional info:

.  I forgot to add that early works were not stamped but from about 1980 on wards an impressed stamp J Matthews Made in England was used as Jim became aware that sales were going to tourists from abroad and he wanted their English origin noted on them

Here's a later piece with an impressed mark, also there is some depth rather than the normal thin plaque

I found one today in a Charity shop, thanks to this post I know know who made her. I thought she looked Scandinavian. No marks on back. She is lovely. Jim Matthews - Wall plaques - Page 2 Img_0110

I found one of his ladies in a box of misc in a charity shop a few years ago now, she was unmarked. Someone begged me to sell her as a present for their partner and I did let her go but still have the occasional pang of regret over it! They're lovely.
