I just found pictures of these Marty Bells on page 116 of Collectible Bells by Donna Baker. They are not specifically called Marty Bells in Baker’s book. She shows “Vermont Winter Belle”, the same bell as you call “Brown Lady” and “Little Missy”, the same bell as you call “Green Lady.”

Baker says, “Flocking provides an interesting texture for these two figurine bells. The Vermont Winter Belle is of hand cast and hand painted ceramic and wears a flocked coat. Her outfit is fashioned after nineteenth century New England dress. 7.5” high. $35-50. “Little Missy” wears a green flocked cosdtume with hip puffs tied at waist. She is also of hand cast, hand painted ceramic. 6.25″ high. $20-25.”
