“Mother Mine”, Chicken Storybox SculpturePast Pieces
This “Mother Mine” Storybox contains the tiniest family of chickens, circa 1930’s. made from painted composition (plaster and wire). They are set inside an equally tiny vintage cash tin, circa 1920’s, with beautiful 1930’s fragment of embroidered leaves surrounding them, and some wonderful 1920’s ornate silk ribbon running around the inside edge of the tin. The quote is from Peter Pan, and is printed by typewriter on to small pieces of vintage cotton.
