A little over a year ago, I made one of the better purchases of my life: a Cire Trudon candle bust of Marie Antoinette at Chris Clement’s store in Little Rock. I don’t dare light the candle — instead, La Dauphine gracefully watches over my vanity. I love the way she adds instant elegance to the space, and at the same time a slightly quirky touch. Inspired by my fabulous Marie, I am super into the idea of collecting antique busts right now. Grouped together on a mantel or even as a dramatic statement in a courtyard, busts bring an air of sophistication to a space. Here I’ve rounded up all of my favorites — ranging from perfectly polished to delightfully whimsical. Enjoy!
