The Museum Bees are sized between 3-5" in width.
Carefully created from Antique Frames, each Museum Bee bridges the beauty of 19th Century American Craftsmanship into the Modern. Keeping in mind that luxury can be accessible, you will find a variety of ornaments and antique objects in the creations. The first addition was Napoleon's Bee, and that is where the name derives. All are original works of art and signed by the artist Trace Mayer. Each is handmade in Louisville KY.
Museum Bee creator, Trace Mayer, signs every Museum Bee and with the initials of the current Kentucky Derby winner. In Kentucky and for our Bees, the year begins on the first Saturday in May.
