Origine des plus belles fileuses en os animées "spinning jenny" ?

 

Origine des plus belles "spinning jennies" (automates), les prisonniers français en Angleterre , ou les artisans de Méru dans l'Oise avec les ivoiriers de Dieppe, avant , après 1815 ?

Exemples et contre-exemples


  When, where and Who really made the most beautiful spinning jennies, bone crank automata, napoleonic PoW in England, or craftsmen of  Méru , Oise France with other craftsmen of Dieppe, after or before 1815?

SOURCE 1/2:

 
« L’IVOIRE DE DIEPPE »
Ce que l’on appelle communément « l’Ivoire de Dieppe » est en
réalité de l’os travaillé par les tabletiers, dont la plupart étaient
établis à Méru (Oise). Leurs œuvres, souvent des fileuses, des scènes
de la vie quotidienne, parfois polychromes ne sont en aucun cas des
œuvres dites de « ponton » (comme cela fut malencontreusement
largement propagé), mais celles d’habiles tabletiers qui réalisèrent
les personnages en série, pour les placer isolément ou en scènes.

« THE IVORY OF DIEPPE »

What is commonly called « the Ivory of Dieppe » is actually bone

worked by Craftsmen, most of which were established in Meru

(Oise). Their works (often « Spinning Jenny », life scenes of the time)

sometimes polychrome, are by no means works called « dock works »

(as was mistakenly widely spread), but those of skilled art workers

(tabletiers) realizing characters series, to place them lonely (like the

Spinning Jenny’s) or in sceneries.

Spinning jenny achetée à Norman Cross par Mr. Wright at Norman Cross.  avant 1815.



"The group of figures on a platform (Plate XVI, Fig. 1), is one of many such mechanical toys or ornaments p. 131known to the author.  This is beautifully preserved, having been kept in the box in which it was purchased for many years.  When the lower wheel below the platform is turned, by an arrangement of the threads passing over the wheels, the various figures move, the lady in the centre turns the winding-wheel, the child moves forward, the soldier and the lady waltz, the mother tosses her baby, turning her head to look at it, while the lady on the left prepares the tea.  The owner of this ornament is the grandson of its purchaser." Thomas James Walker.

"made by French prisoners of war in Carnarvon Gaol and given to the Lord Lieutenant of Carnarvon Castle for his kindness during their captivity" (Welsh: Castell Caernarfon )

Paul Chamberlain, author of 'Hell Upon Water: Prisoners of War in Britain 1793-1815' said:
From 1793 until 1814, over 200,000 French and French allies were held as PoWs, and whilst it's impossible to put a definite figure on it, several thousand of them would have been held in Wales.
