A Fabulous And Rare Antique 19th Century Folk Art Snake Made From 100’s Of Postage Stamps.
The Victorians were recycling and reusing a century before any of us. Everyday objects like wishbones, spools and nut shells were all given a new life as fanciful, yet functional art objects. All the rage in the 19th century, this crafty trend of turning trash into tiny treasures resulted in Victorian fancies.
Stamps were one popular way for those who couldn’t afford luxuries to make playthings. This is a superb example!
