Sometimes you see fabulous things at estate sales.
Sometimes you realize you were fortunate enough that the fabulous thing you found was still there an hour after the estate sale began, and even though it was priced a little higher than you would normally pay and would not be discounted since it was still early in the first day of the 2-day sale, you know it is valued at about four times as much and worth every serendipitous penny.
Not that I will be selling her. Ever.
A little dusty around the shoulders, but she should clean up pretty nicely.
I'll have to inspect a little further for a manufacturer or at least a location. Do you think she's French? Or a native New Yorker?
Lovely claw feet.
She looks right at home!
There must have been something in the Jersey air since Jill of Gypsy Brocante found one last month. And, like her, I am also trying to come up with an appropriate name, although I'm thinking something to reflect our Italian heritage would be preferable. Any suggestions? I'm leaning towards Graziella…
Hope everyone is having a glorious Mother's Day!
