- Some beautiful, new to us, one of a kind finds coming to the #mplsvintagemkt via #sadievailvintage on May 19th! .
This is one of about a dozen Mid Century, vintage, wood, hand carved figures I was lucky to have found recently. It is carved from olive wood and is the image of a pregnant woman with a child on each side; an original, signed piece by Uri Roth, an Israeli sculptor. .
I think one of the coolest things about this and the other pieces I'll have available, is how they got to MN. Each one was specifically selected by Ellen Wolfson (a progressive nurse & nurses advocate) and her husband Stan (one of the pioneers of Twin Cities TV). They traveled the world together throughout the mid 1900s, and picked up all sorts of incredible treasures along the way. You can read more about them in their obituaries online; which I encourage you to do. They seem to have been a couple of really unique and caring people who are very much missed and who contributed so much to their communities. I would have loved to have known them! .
Come see us at the market next month (we missed out on a booth this month) and see some of the other beautiful carvings from their estate! .
