Found Wood Girl - String Tidy
Being surrounded by old things all my life (born into a family of antique dealers) has definitely left its mark – I have a mixture of old and new pieces in my house, with a particular fondness for old wood – there’s really nothing like it. I’m also a big fan of giving old (and often discarded) things new life, and creating something out of salvaged materials. Occasionally I come across a piece of 'found' wood that is just asking to be made into a wood girl - and if it can be useful too, even better.
This little vintage wood finial has been painted with little stripes and dots, and is perfect as a cute way to hold your string. She has been finished in two coats of acrylic and gently polished.
Stamped underneath with ‘nakamura’ characters [中村] in red ink.
Approximately 12cm high.
Please note: THIS IS NOT A TOY and should be kept out of the reach of children.
