The first two items are pictured above and below. I picked this vintage bar stool up last summer at a community yard sale, for like $5. It sat in my garage for months, and I finally cleaned it up and brought it up to my kitchen in the current state. The seat is in fairly decent condition, but not perfect. I do really like the color of the red seat though.
Through my research I found that there is a matching painting of a boy called Chico. The pair are often referred to as gypsy children. So I am going to keep my eyes out and see if I ever find it . If I do, I’m buying it! There is no signature, so I’m not sure if it is original or not. I plan to repair the chunk that is taken out of the frame, and then paint the frame. I’m not sure yet what color the frame will be. I am leaning toward a pink or coral color to match her bow in her hair and her skirt, or possibly a pretty blue to compliment her vest. What do you think? any suggestions? I just sat this there for this post. Obviously this is not the permanent home for this artwork.
And I can’t wait to share it with you!
