This is a doll I recieved from my sister, who got it at a yard sale. At the time she paid under a hundred dollars, but the lady who sold it to her said it was worth much more. I dont know its value yet, but I am seeking an apraiser or anyone who might have an idea of its worth. It is very beautiful and I marvel at the skill that it took someone to make it all by hand out of paper. Even her body, hair, hat, and the flower are all origami. Its in a very old wood and glass storage box with a faded purple tassle for a handle. Id love to know more about what it is worth, and where it came from.
