We are pleased to announce the addition of the Garden Traditions line of antique reproduction garden ornaments to our patio and garden collection. In 2006, Barbara Israel established Garden Traditions, a line of garden ornaments modeled directly from antique originals in her collection. Each piece is chosen for its fine workmanship and superb design, and reflects the aesthetic sensibility of Barbara's twenty years of experience as one of the foremost antique garden ornament dealers in the field. Made in America, the Garden Traditions collection is meticulously cast in composition stone and hand finished by skilled craftsmen. Garden owners have the unique opportunity to acquire replicas with the historical significance and exceptional quality for which the Barbara Israel Garden Antiques collection is so celebrated, at a fraction of the cost. Classics for today, these pieces are appropriate both indoors and out, in settings from traditional to modern.
The Dorset Maiden is the companion figure to the Somerset Maiden standing with one leg forward, draped in classical robes with cascading flowers in her hair, one arm across her chest and the other supporting a floral swag. It is a faithful replica of a carved stone English original of circa 1880. It measures 53” H x 16”W x 12.5 ins. square at base. It is shown in the Limestone finish.
The Garden Traditions collection is available in three colors: Limestone, Travertine and Granite. In addition, we offer a weathered surface finish. Our optional weathered finish is an individual, hand-applied surface patina. It replicates the natural patina stone acquires over time and is unique to each piece. Individual finish samples can be purchased for $4.50. The entire board of finish samples can be purchased for $25, and we will refund you the cost if you return the sample board back to us. Please make your finish selection from the drop-down menu.
