    I figured nobody else would take her home. She is 5 1/2" high.

    11/16/2016 > I found out from a Facebook friend that this is traditional Welsh dress. The style appears to be late 1800s, according to old photos I found. I will post the link in the Comments.
    Possible that this old chalk figure is also from the late 1800s.

    Thanks for taking a look!

      rose - that's similar. I can't find a single thing that looks like mine. The shoes appear to be styled as wooden shoes, except they're black. I think I might put her on Facebook and ask some of my Dutch friends if they recognize anything about her.
