"Reminder of a past & successful career in nursing!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I gave this to my sister who just retired from nursing after 46 years. It was a unique & perfect gift. She was known for the nurse who wore red shoes, so I was able to paint the shoes with red fingernail polish to add one more personal touch! She displayed it on a table at her retirement party....I may be getting questions about where I purchased it; I will be happy to pass along the information about this artisan and your company site. Thank you for helping me find this unique gift.

When my daughter graduated nursing school we gave her this. It is fun and quirky but a good reminder of the work she does everyday.

"It is wonderfully made, and very clever"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was initially drawn to this item because I m both an owner and a lover of standard poodles. I m surprised I don t see more of them than I do since they are so distinctive looking. But when this piece arrived I was quite pleased with how well designed and put together it was— just like my real live poodle! So it s got a nice spot in a very important room.

"So nice, I kept it for myself"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Originally, I bought this Don Quixote sculpture to decorate a guest suite for someone who enjoys this Cervantes character. But it is so well-made and attractive that I keep it in my foyer so that I can see it every day, instead! Substantial weight, sturdy, as well as, artistic. Highly recommend!
