ViNTaGe Basket with
Old PaPer F*L*O*W*E*R*S...
My Most FaVoRite ViNTaGe Basket
adorned with a Barbola BiRd & FLoWeR Garland...
Instead of using carved wood pieces ~ a plaster/glue mixture know as "gesso" was used to form flower garlands and small decorative objects ~ mostly affixed to baskets, picture frames, & mirrors... Genuine piece almost always have missing pieces and most certainly line cracks due to the the shrinkage nature of the the material...
Hope your MonDay
is off to a good start!*!*!
