    I found this little cutie at Salvation Army this morning. She certainly is pretty and very demure. At 8" tall the pillow that she's seated on measures 5" x 7". It's very heavy for it's size, so my guess is she was probably used as a doorstop. The paint has a very shiny pearlized quality to it and is nicely done especially her face. I love her expression. I found an alabaster version (see insert pic #1) listed on an online auction site but as with this one there are no marks to ID a maker. She is a bit chipped unfortunately. Her poor big toe is missing and the corners of the pillow and the sleeve on her gown have a bit of damage. Thankfully her face is perfect and a little bit of TLC could take care of the rest. Some of the white spots around her hair and the flower are just glare and not damage. Considering her age I think she's fine the way she is. At least for now. -Mike-
