    These are cast aluminum from the 1970’s that as far as I know are the only ones like these. Arthur Court made the frogs in 1975 that look so real they fooled my dog for a while.I don’t know if he made the mushrooms snails and turtles.These have glass bulb protectors underneath that light up that were placed in hedges around a huge koi pond in a jungle like setting in someone’s backyard.There’s a pair of glass shells in back that marked the entrance.I first seen these over 30 years ago and to this day I’ve never seen anything like this place that had 2 large running waterfalls with all kinds of domesticated wild animals running around.The only way I got these was by being in the right place at the right time as the place had fallen in to total disrepair.These were a mess when I got them as you can see in the last picture.I’ve spent hours cleaning these up and sanding them down that I’ve started to paint.I’m putting hedges around the swimming pool that I’m going to place these in.I’ll update these photos when I’m finished.Thanks for looking.
