I've got my set out, and given them the once-over. Here's what I found:

Treebeard: 53cm X 72.5cm. Signed 'Simon Garbutt '70'

Gollum 58.5cm X 66cm neither signed nor dated, but has 'No.1 of 'The Hobbit' series' and also 'Distributed in the UK by Instore Marketing Services, 217-218 Tottenham Court Road, London W1'.

'Bilbo' 56.5 X 66cm. Neither signed nor dated; has 'No.2 (or possibly 3) in the series'

Shadowfax: 57X72cm. 'No.4 in the series'. There is a full signature, which I can't make out. It's the same artist as the one who did Gandalf. See below. Dated "'70"

Gandalf:56.5 X 72cm. signed "d. de S. Pernes, '69'

Christina and I also think that the signature isn't genuine.

(The word, by the way, is provenance, 'the pedigree of a book's previous ownership' - John Carter, ABC for Book Collectors.)

The bloomsbury "oil paint" signature doesn't look right to me either. Willing to be corrected by some of the true experts around here, but this looks and feels wrong to me.
