This is an amazing piece that I believe was the best that Cybis ever produced. It was a Limited Edition of 100, issued in 1980, issue price of $16,500.00, and the edition was sold out. (One was used as a gift to a Head of State by a sitting Governor or a Southern state.)
This is only the second one I have ever had. It is a breathtakingly beautiful piece. The first sold for $7,500.00 some years ago. As time goes by, rare pieces such as this usually appreciate in value. (I have been told there is one with damage offered for $5,000.00, but I do not want damaged pieces Any kind of damage markedly lowers the value). This is so amazingly detailed. Each leaf; each flower. She is a young bride, so cute with her bare feet peeking out in front of her skirt. She is a lovely young girl with sweetness and naivete.
