    Thank you Manikin for your kind words. I am going to try to post more pics. of her. Any ideas where she might have come from? Irene

    I don't have any pics of her back....that would require me to move her and as you can tell by the dust she hasn't budged in a long time. lol... but I did add a few more photos.

    Well we know she is Asian but so elaborate I am looking for clues on her . One would think she was a Empress . What is that cage she is holding ? I am between Thailand and China right now . I am sure she is a valuable piece .

    I think that cage sort of looks like a lamp of some kind....held by chain and a dragons head. Its funny you would say Empress....this morning I was really looking hard at her for the first time.... and I was thinking she looked like a goddess or warrior. I still don't have a clue as to where she might be from. Your amazing manikin! Thank you for all your help!!!

    Irene, you are right that she is a an female chinese worrier, could be mu-lan. Just google the Disney movie with the same name. It's, according to my friend, an export chinese art been made around 1930. My friend is collecting this figures, so I believe there are others around want her too.
