The first image is of Toller Cranston's home in 1991, there are several things I transferred to my collection after the 3 day auction. On the left of the first photo you can see a large onyx 4 column pedestal and in the background you can see 2 white marble angels. Cranston was going through with some problems at the time and sold everything, literally, that he owned.

He was going through a nervous breakdown, it was very obvious and mentioned to me that he wanted to be free and just paint with nothing to distract him.

I seen him after the auction, several times, but made sure I was not near him as I found his energy and attitude very negative. The best things that came into my hands was the onyx pedestal and the magnificent marble angels.

In the other 3 photos, you can see the marble angels after they came into my home.
