This is a tiny vaseline art glass Southern Bell. I have two of them. They measure 2 1/2" x 2". They have a polished pontil and glow in the black light. Her name is Florance and she was made in 1985.

    think this is Boyd's Crystal Art Glass 'Colonial Doll'; they made several similar little dolls. I think this is the color they called lemonade; so the doll would be named 'Florence' c1985.

    Thank you very much TallCakes, I looked it up. Did not see this particular one, but the other colors had the exact same molded body. Many thanks.

    after making my comment I noticed there is one on eBay with an original tag:

    I am so sorry if I am disturbing you, but this is the first spot I found and you may be able to answer my questions about a whole bunch of figurines I have. Mostly are just like the one you have posted but all different colors. If you don't mind can you please maybe explain the significance of these figures I have and are they of value?thank you so much. Again, my apologies for my ignorance on the subject

    Forgot to mention that I have come across around 30+ glass figurines all of different colors sizes and genre but they all seem to be from the same artist. I'd just liked to get hopefully more information so I know how I should proceed with them. Thank you again

    Curious, TallCakes was kind enough to give me the information on this item. Click on the link she posted above our comments and that will take you to a page that has some information. TallCakes has been invaluable to me as she seems to know a lot about glass.

    My pleasure, I wish I knew as much as TallCakes so I could be more helpful. Everyone on this site is so very generous with their comments.

    Boyd produced these in more than 30 colors of glass. Unfortunately since shutting down production in 2014 they no long show examples on their website. There are lists of colors and molds tho':
