What a cute little bovine family! There’s a mommy and two babies – mommy measures 3 ½” tall (at tallest), one baby is 2 1/8” tall (at tallest), the other is 1 ¾” (at tallest). They’re colorful cows – light yellow with pink and blue accents and some gold trim – and they have large expressive eyes. Purchased at an estate sale, previous owner had dated them 1950 on underneath of each. Wonderful condition with minor wear to gold on their horns – that’s it!
Figurines by Josef are so pretty with great detail and this one is no exception! She’s the July birthday girl “dressed” in lilac and holding a basket of 3 pink flowers with red centers. She measures 4” tall, stamped on bottom: Josef Original, and has silver id label – “July, Ruby, Josef”. In excellent condition!
Neat item – Enesco’s Betsy Ross pin cushion/tape measure from the Kitchen Independence line! Measures 4 ¾” tall and is in very good condition – she has a teeny ding (fleck) on the back of her chair and the tape measure has sprung. It could probably be replaced with a small round tape measure because it just sets inside the figurine – not attached but held in place with a couple small pieces of newspaper (original to item). Pincushion is sawdust filled...
Another unusual Enesco listing – a napkin holder and shaker set from their Colonial Americana line! The napkin holder has a man standing by a scroll with the beginning of the preamble “We the People of the United States”. Measures 5 ¾” tall and is in wonderful condition – has a tiny 1/16” ding on his coat. Shaker set is in wonderful condition -- he has a teeny rough dot on corner of his jacket and she has lost the cold paint from the flag she's "holding"...
Very pretty spoon holder from Enesco’s Kitchen Independence line! This is Betsy Ross, measures 5 ¾” tall, and is in excellent condition with only evidence of “use” being some cold paint loss on the flag. Nice item, very collectible!
This is an unusual and difficult to find Enesco napkin holder – a variation of the Mother in the Kitchen line! She has the lace trim glued around her apron and her hat, the apron has “It seems the harder I work, the luckier I get”. She has wonderful color and her facial features are very pretty – she has large, expressive eyes. Excellent condition!
