I finally updated my Flickr account so all the photos of Karen Grimm's collection are viewable. i cannot believe i didn't take more photos of it! What was i thinking?!?!?

Harriet, the North Lights are on pages 12-13-14 of the photo stream. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Once i got the nerve to open (some of the) glass cabinet doors for better photos, i had the wits to go back and photo one cabinet without the doors in the way, but i forgot to get the other cabinet so there is glare. No

Karen was a NL dealer, so she had an almost complete collection. Although, oddly enough, she seems to be missing a few sheep. but are those bunnies cute, or what?!

i've always felt NL's other animals were better than their horses. Rather like Beswick!

can you say gorgeous!? Sorry the photo is blurry, but he was on top of a 6 foot cabinet, and i had to stand on my toes holding the camera above my head hoping it was actually aiming at him while trying to keep my balance and not fall head first into a glass cabinet with 1000s of dollars of Hagen Renakers!

and i didn't get any photos of her Border Fine Arts nor of her main Breyer collection, which is housed in another building! I now regret that i didn't go through systematically and take a photo of every shelf.

Some general shots of the collection to give you an idea of the scope.
This is what you see when you first walk in:

In addition to everything else, Karen was a skilled and talented glaze artist. The first big cabinet is all her glaze work. She reverse-engineered the old Hagen Renaker glazes and created a lot of HRs that "should have been". If you don't know better, you'd think these are all original finish.

Those of you who know Breyer, check out the second shelf of the cabinet on the right. Yes, your eyes do not deceive you: that is a complete set of Decorators. All 20 of them. Plus the pink elephant and the gold elephant.

When i was there in March, i counted 67 Fighting Stallions in the collection. And yes, that is a complete set of Woodgrains.
