On Friday, I was running late. 30 seconds late. And that's all it took for me to miss out on buying this guy.
It's a life-size wood-and-plaster zebra, vintage of course, and completely amazing. Can't you see him perfectly perched beneath a console table?
Look for it on the set of Homeland. The Homeland set designer beat me to it. And when asked if she would consider selling to me, she curtly replied, "ABSOLUTELY NOT."
Giant plaster zebras are fabulously representative of Palm Beach style. We saw several of them in shops along Dixie Highway.
Jonathan Adler loves them too (although his zebras are more demurely sized than mine).
You win some, and you lose some. I lost this time, but maybe another plaster zebra will come my way some day soon!
