ViNTaGe Basket with
 ~*Barbola BiRd*~


Old PaPer F*L*O*W*E*R*S...
Old B*O*T*T*L*E*S
A*N*D
My Most FaVoRite ViNTaGe Basket
adorned with a Barbola BiRd & FLoWeR Garland...



What is ViNtAge "Barbola" ???
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
