Hi everyone...yes I'm still around. It's been a while since I've posted due to the fact that there's really been a shortage of anything worth buying at the thrifts, especially during Winter. Spring is here so people will start cleaning and the treasures should start pouring in again.
I've been busy as well at the antique co-op where my sister and I have a booth. People come and go and the opportunity presented itself to relocate, so I figured why not. It's a larger space and in a better location toward the front of the store. Can't believe all the things we had crammed into our original small space ! What a job, but I'm glad I did it.
Today I finally spied something worthwhile at Volunteer's of America. This interesting 8" carved bone figure on a wood base was sitting on a shelf right by the front door. I think he represents an "Immortal" probably part of a set or at least a pair. Very nicely carved with polychrome highlights. The base has a little post that fits into the hollow of the bone. I wasn't sure at first if it was resin or not but after I removed the base there was no doubt. Kind of gross inside but it's definitely a piece of bone. Not sure of the age but I feel the quality is quite good so maybe turn of the century or later. -Mike-
