I'm almost as passionate about auction sales as I am about geneology.
Let me tell you about my little "find".
Its a relief hand carving of a woman, painted in blue dress, with a
tartan scarf. I suppose you would classify it as "folkart", but it is
extremely well done. There is a label at the bottom saying "Highland
Mary". The artist signed the back, and dated it 1934.
I have a copy of Robbie Burns' songs and poems, and sure enough, he
wrote a poem
titled Highland Mary. However, Sandy thinks he read a true story about
a Scottish woman by that name, but can't remember where, or what it was
Do any of you Scots historians know of any other Highland Mary?
