Mary Grady O'Brien cottages, early. Sold individually



Three different whimsical cottages, each hand painted in detail by artisan Mary Grady O'Brien.  Two of them are signed, one is not.  I asked Mary about these and she said that they are made of polymer clay, so date before she got a kiln for porcelain in 1981/82.
