Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
This is a Lefton mermaid riding on a seahorse inside of a homemade shadow box made from an old shirt box, a piece of glass and contact paper. There are also two ceramic tropical fish swimming in the "sea" above the mermaid. The box is lined with a book or magazine page that has a sepia-tone underwater ocean scene. The fish and mermaid are sewn to the backing and seem quite secure.
The shadow box measures 13 inches tall and 10 inches across; the box is 1 1/4 inches deep. There is a shoelace threaded through the top of the box for hanging, but I wouldn't trust it to hold. The box is taped together and glued on the corners and the tape is very yellowed. The contact paper has a few wrinkles on top and traces of the maker's pencil guide lines for cutting. The sea horse has one small chip on one of the spikes on his tail -- not at all noticeable when looking at the piece straight on. The glaze on the yellow fish has some crazing; otherwise, the ceramic pieces look excellent.
Please note that I have not taken apart the box to look at the backs of the pieces and the item is being sold "as is". I have noted all the flaws that I can see.
This item will be shipped via Priority Mail and packed with utmost care.
Please convo with any questions. Thanks!
