Here is a sweet Bearstone called "Diane and Joanie ... Sisters Forever", featuring two sisters sitting on a park bench. They are fashionably dressed in colorful outfits. There is a banner that runs along the bottom that says "A Sister is a Born Friend".
There are so many details on this hand painted resin composition Bearstone. This is really an amazing sculpture and design, requiring a lot of expertise. The patch of grass that the bench is on has some fallen leaves around it. The bears have such sweet expressions on their faces.
Boyds Collection figurines have been highly collected since their introductions. "Diane and Joanie" is referenced in the "Boyds Resin Tracker Handbook" by Bangzoom Press, 2004. This Bearstone was issued in 2003 and retired in 2004.
Quote on the bottom: "There's a special kind of freedom sisters enjoy. Freedom to share innermost thoughts, to ask a favor, to show their true feelings. The freedom to simply be themselves." - Unknown
This Bearstone is in perfect condition, never displayed, from the inventory of a closed store. It will come in the original green box, with the original packing. It also has the Boyds Certificate of Authenticity. This makes a perfect gift for your favorite sister.
