Tiny cottage, Mary Grady O'Brien, very early



A tiny cottage with two chimneys, hand painted in detail and signed by artisan Mary Grady O'Brien.  I asked Mary about this and she said that it is made of polymer clay, so dates before she got a kiln for porcelain in 1981/82.  She also said that the stylized signature of MO'B was inspired by monograms.

13/16 inch (2.0 cm) wide, 9/16 inch (1.4 cm) deep and 5/8 inch (1.6 cm) tall.
