Yesterday I stopped in an antique store here in Dallas and found
this little booth with this gold architectural fragment
attached to a clear lucite base.
The price is $345.00
They are gorgeous and expensive.
I wished I had my camera with me,
but I only had my iphone.
They appear to be a wood or a wood composite.
Below is a lamp made of a wooden urn placed on a lucite base.
Notice the bust on the lower left side.
Here is another putti that is the opposite of the one above.
I love the juxtaposition of the old world wood carved putti
placed upon a modern day lucite base.
These would work well in a traditionally decorated home
or in a modern home.
Now, if I only had $345.00
So, I am wondering if I had the materials
if I could make these myself?
