I always remember the little curio case sitting in the center of the living room mantel. It had been painted white at some point, though it was a bit yellowed with age. Inside were two shelves, plus the base, where small items could be displayed. The only one that I remember at this time was a small, blond boy in a red devil suit, done in plaster. One arm was up and had a hole in it, indicating that he had once been holding something, probably a wire trident. I refused to bid on anything when Mom had her moving auction, so I didn't even attend the emptying out of my old home place. I would like to have had the little devil, and one set of candle-sticks that originally belonged to my grandparents, but that's life. The old case was already in my possession and had been partially stripped at the time. So it remains.
I came across it in the basement today and decided to see what I could get for it on Facebook. I guess I'm having a moving sale of my own, I just don't know when I'm leaving. I DO hope the residents in my eventual home don't dress like the little devil, though! -LOL © 2016
