SKU: MEM21

Three different whimsical cottages, each hand painted in detail by artisan Mary Grady O'Brien.  All three are signed, showing two different forms of her signature.  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.  She also said that the stylized signature of MO'B on the right hand cottage was inspired by monograms.
