Adorable mouse and dragonfly ornament.
This curious wee mouse has a vintage china ear and mother of pearl detail with a brass tail and whiskers watches the silver dragonfly as it twirls around a dandelion stem. He is finished in crystalline verdigris and sits on a genuine old iron key. He is 105mm tall.
“Whilst digging my garden I found old bits of china in the soil, they were like pieces of buried treasure to me. So I started making these little beasties with them using some scraps of copper from my husband’s workshop. Now I search around antique and vintage shops looking for chipped teacups and lonely saucers to supplement my garden finds.”
