Obviously our beautiful art deco lady wasn’t always blue, and I know some purists are going to have a heart attack when I say this, but I quite like the way she looks now. Obviously I would never choose to paint her – she’s a highly collectible Austrian piece by Gmundner Keramik – but I assume that the previous owners had a good reason for painting her (perhaps some damage to the original terracotta?), and I love their bold choice of colour! It’s a pity though that her paint is peeling – perhaps someone braver than me will try and see what’s hiding underneath that paint. It might be worth the risk – in their original condition these figurines can sell for as much as R2000!
