A Mermaid's Tale
In honor of today's annual Mermaid's Day Parade
on Coney Island, I give you three seductive works depicting the
mythical muses. Above is a plate created in the mid-century by an artist
named Sagittaire in the Valluris region of the South of France and below, a pair of Swedish porcelain figurines created in the 1940s by Harald Salomon for Rörstrand.
The plate is 9" in diameter
The statuettes are 16" in height
