When I first laid eyes upon this amazing little girl, I was in love. One of the most beautiful examples I have EVER seen, this outstanding girl will enchant all who see her. What an incredible face... I think it is her delicate little smile that captivated me the most. She is a frothy confection deserving of a crowning place in any collection of rare characters. Exhibiting the finest quality of painting, the most exquisite modeling, and the softest, pale coloring, she is a tip-top investment piece that you will love and adore for years to come. I almost kept her, but because we have so many avid S&H collectors in our following, I decided that she should be offered for sale. Act fast, because I know that she will not be here long!
