Purchased in 1961 from Mrs. Notowicz’s Gift Shop. All the figurines sat on glass shelves on the sunporch of their home next to Morris Plains Borough School, Speedwell Avenue. This mother dog and her nursing pups was the one I longed for. And bought. And have kept all this time. Barely noticed most years. Hardly dusted. Photographing these fine items allows decision making as it is time to pare down possessions. Paul Notowicz, grade school and high school classmate, we loved your mother’s gift shop.
