So after limited success on the treasure hunt lately I found my first Sascha Brastoff piece in the wild. I couldn't believe it and practically dragged a SA worker over to get it out of the case. S. Brastoff is really stylized, went through a number of phases including native American, Alaskan and the typical birds/fish/horses. He was popular in the 50s and 60s although he did work during WWII. I am a big fan of his eggs but only own one. The egg is the only piece I have ever bought on line and still feel the love for it.
Sascha Brastoff and a gift from V, what a day!

    This is really the only thing I have found in a couple of weeks. I wonder if everyone has stopped donating so the can have garage sales?

    In a fit of Sascha love I bid on a new egg this morning...no go.
    V, I have a book on him too. Maybe I'll post some pics. I haven't found a piece of his in the wild so I was excited.

    So your new one is a 'bird of paradise'? It reminds me of the Australian Lyre bird took. Did he do a whole series on birds?
    I've seen the really camp ballet dancers and harlequins which I think are really cool.
    Check out this photo of him:
