Keeping with my love of pretty figurines and angels, I purchased these two beautiful Guardian Angels. I began my angel collection a short time before this with my first four angels. These angels were purchased only about a month after purchasing the first set.
These angels were made much in the same manner as the first set of angels I purchased. Both sets were purchased at the Dollar General Store. There were some unique differences which captured my eye and made them a beautiful addition to my angel collection. These were obviously representations of Guardian Angels making them even more appealing to me.
These angels were sold individually, but I purchased them together and made them into a set of two because they are very similar in design.
Features of These Beautiful Angels
* Each ceramic angel is crafted of sturdy and durable material. Oh, if you drop them, they will break. They are not so fragile that a mere bumping will damage them. I have owned these angels for many years, and they still look great with no chips, cracks, or breaks.
* They are set on a wooden base which is attached to the bottom of each of the two angels.
* These angels include a baby laying or sitting in front of the angel. These angels appear as Guardian Angels protecting the little ones as they play and sleep.
* The colors used in these two angels were of a pale type and makes them look more earthy in color. All the colors on these angels do not fade, peal, flake, or rub off.
* Colors of the babies and other details are bold, clear and stand out amongst the design and color of the angels.
* These angels are done in great detail making them look very realistic.
* They were very reasonably priced.
The only drawback to these beautiful angels would be for those wanting something more expensive and finely detailed. Those who are looking for brand name figurines or those made by top artists and designers will want to look some where else besides the Dollar General Store. These angels would not be valued at the high values of the more finely detailed pieces done by top designers or artists, but this is not a problem for me. To me, they are perfect keepsakes.
The angels in this collection are very old so finding these exact angels would be rather difficult, but many other styles of angels are available. If you do not find any angels or ones you like at your local Dollar General Store, I would recommend looking at eBay. Once at the eBay site, just type in angels in the search bar and see what you will get. There is a great selection of beautiful angels ranging in many different sizes and prices.
Those wishing to start a collection of ceramic figurines of any type would be wise to look first at their local Dollar General store. This is a great store. If money is very limited, this is the perfect place to look. You never know what treasures you may find there.
These angels are not expensive or high in value, but they are special keepsakes. These will be cherished and kept until they can be passed on to another generation.
Note: Some of the details of this review is the same as My First Angel Figurine Collection. (Click on text link to see this other review.) This is because the place of purchase, and many other details of both angel sets are the same. This will make some features, drawback, and recommendations basically the same for both sets. The differences they do have is the reson for spliting them into two reviews.
