Sheila Inc.

Location: Cleveland, Ohio

Circa: 1937 to 1938

Sheila Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio was an odd mixture for a Dimestore figure producer. Listed as selling cosmetics and toiletries, the hollowcast lead sports figures were definitely out of place. The company produced it's sports figures around 1937 to 1938. After years of research and many theories, my current one is that Sheila had a sort of competition between three local sculptors. One of the sculptors was Legendary Football Hall of Fame portrait bust sculptor Jack Worthington. Sheila figures have a crude appearance due to the sculptor using plaster for the model instead of wax. The figures come in simple color combinations of Orange, Red and Blue. The Back stands 3 1/4 inches tall, the Lineman crouches 2 1/8 inches tall and the Center crouches 1 7/8 inches tall.

The discovery of the Sheila detailed Football figures raises the question of their being an Original Paint Variation. Due to the absence of documented information, examination and comparison is the next best alternative. After close examination of the paint jobs, I feel as though the Paint Variation is Vintage and possibly a Salesman Set, Store Display or Special Order and not a regular production Paint Job.
