VINTAGE 50s ENESCO PRAYER LADY PICTURE FRAME
Wow, this is a RARE piece!This is the 1950s Enesco pink ''prayer lady'' or ''mother in the kitchen'' picture frame. She has been stored away for many years, and now is the time for her to go to a new home.The series of prayer lady pieces (salt and pepper shakers, napkin holders, etc.) was sold in five and dime and department stores. They came in pink -- the most popular color -- and a few other colors as well. I don't know how many of this particular piece was sold in the 50s, but I do know it is one of the rarest you can find at this time.This lovely gal is 6 inches tall and is in well preserved condition for her age. (So many of the prayer lady pieces had their heads broken off, you will be pleased to see that this lady is not broken!)I have taken 9 pictures so you can see the prayer lady from all angles. Since pictures tell the story much better than I can, here they are:
This next picture is an extreme close-up of what look like hairlines along a portion of one of the folds of the prayer lady's collar. I am pointing to the area so you can take a look at it. I believe this is original to the manufacture, my husband thinks it occured later. Therefore, I want you to see exactly what it looks like so you can decide who is correct! Regardless, it isn't quite noticeable in ''real life'' unless you are very specifically looking for it. Here is the close-up:
Here is another close-up I'd like for you to take a look at. This is a white spot. It is under the glaze, so I am positive it is original to the manufacture:
I have a piece of plastic that I believe originally came with this prayer lady to be inserted in the slot and over whatever picture was placed in the frame. I will include it when I ship the prayer lady. However, it is a bit smaller than the opening of the frame and the edges would show. It would be best to get a piece of glass to insert or, even better, just put a picture in without any plastic or glass at all!If you collect these wonderful pieces and do not have this particular prayer lady, offer today!
