AT 18" TALL, THIS COULD BE THE CENTER OF ATTRACTION IN YOUR MEXICAN TIN COLLECTION. I HAVE HAD HER DISPLAYED FOR YEARS WITH MY MEXICAN POTTERY, AND OTHER PIECES OF TIN FOLK ART. I MUST DOWN SIZE FOR MOVE TO SMALLER HOUSE, SO LOTS OF MEXICAN TREASURES MUST BE SOLD. MY LOSS, YOUR GAIN.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN AN ANGEL LIKE THIS ONE. I BELIEVE HER HEAD IS MADE OF POTTERY, BUT NOT SURE. THE TIN IS FASHIONED ALL ROUND, SO YOU CANNOT SEE THE EDGES OR BACK. HER HAIR IS A DREAM. LOTS OF WORK WENT INTO THE PIECE. THE WINGS ARE MADE TO BE REMOVED, AND ARE EASILY SLIPPED BACK INTO PLACE.
THE BASE IS ABOUT 10" ACROSS. THERE IS A BIT OF RUST HERE AND THERE. THERE IS CANDLE WAX ON HER, BUT CAN BE REMOVED IF YOU WANT. SHE HAS NOT BEEN CLEANED, IS A BIT DUSTY. OTHERWISE, THIS IS THE BEST OLD CONDITION!
MARK ME AS A FAVORITE, SO YOU DON'T MISS THE NEXT FEW PIECES I WILL BE LISTING!
THANK YOU FOR CHECKING OUT MY LISTING!! LOTS MORE MEXICAN ITEMS IN MY STORE, LOTS MORE TO COME!!
