I would love to know the provenance of those. Huge history and following and the molds end up in a thrift. Sounds like a candidate for antiques roadshow or the local news. Nice find!

Nah, mang. All were tastefully disposed of in a ceremonial burning. Several uniformed veterans representing 4 wars were present. A true flag burning is a beautiful and incredibly patriotic event.

I figured it was something along those lines. Just jokes. Somehow, I didn't peg you for a flag burning anarchist so I knew there had to be more to the story.

If you don't mind me asking, what field are you in?

Performing arts (hence the long struggle freelancing).

Hmm maybe I should go back for them. If nothing else could make for some interesting bookends.

There copies of the original molds. Those are ceramic molds. She made them originally from clay bisque totally different process. They made thousands of copies of those molds I'm sure. Those molds would be really yellow from firing over the years not bright white. The original has the trademark in the back of her kneck. I say good call leaving them.

Thanks. Yeah wasn't think they're valuable or anything. Just it's always cool to stumble across something a little unusual. There were also some random figurines, nativity statuettes, etc. I did buy a half dozen tiny baby heads. Not sure what for but seemed like the thing to do.

I know you are joking but if I saw someone actually do this, I am not sure what i would do. I have had my credit card stolen like 4 times. If I ever met someone that stole credit cards I am pretty sure id beat the ever loving shit of out them

..but you're right about the identity theft people, although I'm not sure how these two topics relate. I've had mine stolen once and my girlfriend has her's stolen on a seemingly regular basis. They always try to make big purchases at wal mart for some reason. Figures.

I think I'm joining you all ... and my daughter is excited to help sell some of my finds.  I was on a trip out of town, and had time to kill:

I was thinking "Hawaiian shirts" instead of "Tom Ford" when I walked in ...

 

100% cashmere, Good looking Canali sport coat, and some other shirts and ties.  Some for me some for the other site ...
