I was at a garage sale and purchased a larger item. The woman had no change and said I should pick out something else to round up my total.
Almost everything in her sale was from the 50s or earlier.
What caught my eye on this figurine was his acorn cap.
I am planning some autumn tablescapes and he will fit in with those as well as other woodsy posts.
There is a pinhole in one heel and a black mar in the chalky finish. Not made of bone china or fragile porcelain. Has a nice nice sound as you tap on it.
There is an irregularity under one ear that is not duplicated on the other side.
I am thinking of painting or staining his acorn cap a darker shade and coloring his hair, but if he actually has some value I do not want to alter an original vintage figurine.
Your opinion? Should I make him look more woodsy and vibrant colored or should I leave him alone?
