Lucia the Mermaid carries her ginger cat companion and a banner reading : 'My bonnie lies over the ocean'. She wears a bodice with a lace collar,and a leafy crown ; she has a detailed tail in rich greens. She is approximately 15cm x 10.5cm. She is free-standing, so she can sit on a mantlepiece or shelf, there is plenty of room for her to carry things like postcards, letters and birthday cards She was made out of clay, fired, painted over many hours with underglazes, glazed and refired. As such, she is an indiviual, there's only one Lucia! I use first class post, Royal Mail.
