I am so taken by these sweet pieces... they are 'keepers', I just can't part with them.
I have a group of them from an estate I am handling. I will be ruthless with myself and list the others but the 5 in the above photo have a permanent home on my studio shelf!
They were collected over the years by an artist. I love the fine craftsmanship in some and the simple folk art style of others. Together they create magic in their honest beauty. They just make me smile.
