Thanks to Ebay
I bought this little statue off of Ebay a couple of years ago. She's vintage....I have really no idea how old she is...but she reminds me of my Tata. Tata was my maternal Grandmother. She was in college during the roaring twenties. She met her future husband while doing theater at Northwestern in Chicago.
My mother had a photo of her from this time of her life...and she looked just like this little statue when she was young. At least twenty years ago, I saw this same little statue in an antique store here in Oklahoma City but it was done in bronze. At the time...it reminded me of Tata instantly...I wanted it badly but could not afford it and had to walk away.
Then a couple of years ago, I'm browsing Ebay and think...I'll look at art nouveau statues. I had never looked for this statue any where...I assumed I'd never find it again. So that day, I look up art nouveau statues which I never did and there she was except this time in this lovely silver finish.
I couldn't bid fast enough. I just love Ebay....don't you?
I think of Tata every time I look at her.
Can you tell me about a happy Ebay find story of your own?
I have many....but this one seemed divine.
