Clementine Hunter Cotton Mural Ornament
The Clementine Hunter collection depicts the every day observations of Artist Clementine Hunter during her life on the Melrose Plantation. Her incredible perspective and depictions of cotton pickings, washdays, pecan pickings, weddings, baptisms, funerals and other scenes of life on Melrose have made her works an important part of American history.
This ornament derives from Hunter’s painting about the cotton process. She shows the horse drawn wagon hauling cotton from the fields to the gin as it was done before tractors were used, and you can see the cotton pickers and the cotton being bailed.
Each glass ornament is meticulously hand sculpted and hand painted by highly skilled artisans, making no two ornaments are alike.
- A percentage of the proceeds of each sale goes towards the preservation and interpretation of the Clementine Hunter House on Melrose Plantation, A National Historic Landmark.
