Vintage Artisan Miniature Dollhouse Mary McGrath 1989 Bird In Flight Thread Iris. This is a gorgeous, autumnal vintage forest scene, depicting a sweet pair of birds who've found a spool of thread.I adore the Iris's in this piece as well as the bird mid flight with the string. There were two of these in the collection, this is the last one. This one is signed and dated by the artist on the underside, only 100 were ever made. Made from clay, Mary makes each one. It is in perfect condition.
This wonderful little miniature was from a collection, 40 years in the making. Every collection has a story and this one is well, just wonderfully special. I was surprised to see such a tiny home with so many minis, the story behind the person, is that she lived a grand life in a large home, she traveled the world in search for artisan miniatures and boy did she find them. This collection is so vast, it features miniatures from artisans Herbillon, Alan Barnes, John Hodgson, Targoni, Ligia, Wonnacott, Jim Irish, William Robertson, Cristina Noriega, Harry Smith, Ernie Levy, Robert Dawson, Keith Bougourd, Maritza Moran, Neil Batson, Susanne Russo, Acquisto, Renee Isabelle, Kupjack, O'meara, Obadiah Fisher, EM Silver, Marcia Backstrom, Wee Forest Folk, Henry Staring-Egberts, Tricia Street, Le Chateau, Ana Felipe, Christopher Whitford, Christine Dell'Anna, Paula Gilhooley, Almudena Gonzalez and more.
Her miniatures and I know she would want each piece to find a wonderful new collection to reside within.
