(Note to Jessica: Hi Jessica! I'm so sorry, but I do not know who manufactured my statue. I purchased mine at an multi-antique dealer shop in New Hampahsire, but I don't know anything other than she is old, chippy, and the most beautiful statuary I ever laid eyes on! I wish I could have been of more help to you!)
Remember when I told you I bought something that was pictured in one of the photos I took at Fairground Antiques last month? I just couldn't pass up 50% off on this vintage Mary garden statue with the most incredible chippy cottage charm!
The original photo from the antique store just didn’t do her justice, so here are some close-ups I took today… (the chippy details really show up when the photos are enlarged)
I would have shared her with you earlier, but at 33" tall and about 80 lbs., there was no way I could get her out of the van by myself.
So last night hubby and I put her in the wheelbarrow and set her down in front of the hemlock, where she now watches over all the garden creatures and birds that visit our little back yard.
I'd been looking at Mary garden statues for the past several years, and when I spotted this vintage one (at such an incredibly affordable price), I knew my search was over... she was perfect. I love looking out the window and seeing her standing in the corner of the yard...
