Provenance: The history of ownership of a valued object.
Yard sale season has been a fun time so far this year and I have made more than a few great finds.
Yesterday I found something really fun. I almost missed it because it was so dirty and just tossed on a table amongst a bunch of the usual crappy church sale donations.
This guy is poseable rubber and he is marked West Germany on the bottom of a foot, or claw.
What makes this little guy a stand out though is his Provenance. When I took him up to the check out table manned by the requisite senior citizen church members one of the ladies volunteered "I brought that, he belonged to me. I've had him since I was a baby".
He wasn't priced and just how much did she want to charge for him? "Oh, just give us 10 cents".
