How precious is this hand-painted bench that depicts the two seated, handmade cloth dolls, painted on the back of the bench? Also written across this 13 ¾” long bench is a quote we should all remember: Be not forgetful of little folk, for they can bring thee joy. The 12 1/2” tall and 4” deep bench has been painted a spruce green and does show some wear; it is signed and dated under the two little painted children – 1986 Lee. Robin Lee, the artist, had her own shop which was full of wonderful primitive pieces and her own hand-painted doll and decorative items. This piece came from her shop where it had been sitting in front of a window for many years, so the back of the little girl’s dress does have quite a bit of fading on it, but otherwise the dolls are in excellent condition. The dolls are 10 ½” tall.
