An Amazing Treasure!


Last week while out treasure hunting my Mom found this amazing treasure!


She's always loved Christmas carolers & religious statues but I never expected her to find something as amazing as Italian Opera singers! 


She looked up, way up, and sitting on a shelf high above her head there they were...


even the young man working there that day confessed he hadn't noticed them before.

  
Excitedly she dragged me over to take a look.


I gasped...


"They are awesome" I pronounced.

  
"You scored a real treasure!"


Thankfully the names were there for me to look up otherwise I would have never known they were characters from Italian plays and operas. 



I don't know anything else about them yet...

All I know is that they are very old and dusty and need a good cleaning.  We just had to share this special, one of a kind treasure with you!

Have you ever seen anything like this?

Oh wow! They ARE amazing!! What a fabulous find!
No I've never seen anything quite like them. I did find a trio of homemade paper mache puppets featuring Katharine Hepburn, Paul Henreid and Douglas Fairbanks Jr that I adore. I thought they were really cool..... great folk art... but your moms opera singers are even cooler yet *winks* Love them! Vanna

What a score! They appear to be a little naive...probably made for a project or display of some kind. I am betting they are one of a kind!

Dumbwit Tellher said...

Leave it to that remarkable mother of yours. What a score indeed, one for the personal record book. I think they are enchanting Terri and wouldn't be great to know their 'story'. One of a kind like your MOM!
Hope all is great this week? Just got word that Emily got a 4.0 her freshman year at college. A day to celebrate!!!
Sending love,
Deb
