Item specifics

Used: An item that has been previously used. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of ... Read moreabout the condition

From the estate of an avid collector, offered here is one VINTAGE LIMITED EDITION MARIA GORETTI BIRD SANCTUARY BISQUE ROBIN STATUE FIGURINE perched on a log, with her little baby bird underneath.  Beautiful attention to details.  Part of the artist's "The Bird Santuary" series... I have not been able to find another like it, but most similar statues say that they were done for QVC in 1992 or 1993.  There is no maker's mark on the statue itself, but looks like the remnants of a sticker on the bottom.  Separate round wooden base, with medallion that reads:
Maria Goretti
0514 / 9500

Measures approx. 9" high x 4" wide x 4" deep.  Wooden base measures 7" in diameter.  In wonderful vintage condition... must mention that one white petal on one flower looks like it has broken off.  Please see photos above for more details.  A great vintage find for your collection!

Please feel free to email with any questions!
