The puzzle may be solved




In 4 to 6 weeks



Christies of New York will have a look at them. 


Thank you Rosemary
of "wherefivevalleys meet"

You had a brilliant idea. 
It is because of you that I sent a few pictures to Christies.
And they were kind enough to respond with a very nice e-mail.

As soon as I hear I will share the good or bad news.

Have a great week my dear
Blogging Friends.

  1. Dear Gina, I'm sure you will continue to cherish these characterful figures whether or not they prove to be of significant value (I know I would), but I look forward with great interest to hear Christie's verdict!

  5. Gina, the more that I study your mystery figures, the more I believe that they are the Magi. Look at their missing hangs. They were each holding something in a gesture of presentation.

  6. Wonderful news Gina.
    These 3 little figures are so interesting. I keep looking at them.. Its their "dress" that intrigue me.
    cant wait to hear the outcome.
    good luck

  7. Dear Karen, Sometimes it's better not to know. I can imagine and dream up all sorts of stories about them. No matter, they will always be special to me. Yet, to know a little more about them would be great.

  8. Dear Rosemary, I will share whatever information I receive from Christies. Thanks for putting the "bee in my bonnet."
    P.S. I fixed the spelling.

  9. Dear Sharon, No doubt you run into many mysteries in your quest for special pieces while scouring the brocantes. Those are your rewards for getting up at the crack of dawn.

  10. Dear Mark, You may be correct. You certainly made an interesting observation. For some reason I have always thought that they belonged to a much larger group. The mostly black figure is carrying an infant on his back and in a sling. Two of the figurines have arms straight down their sides (can't tell about the third). Would you not think that when presenting a gift, it would be held with both hands? And what about the infanat in the sling? Still, your Magi theory is a strong possibility.

  11. Dear Val, And a happy Monday to you too. It will be four to six weeks before I will know anything. You will be the first to know. But it is always possible that they will remain a mystery forever.
