Take a moment to imagine being a young child on Easter weekend, before Sunday dinner, searching around for a golden egg covered with flowers and little chicks...and at last, the little gold glint catches your eye- you find the egg in the broom closet, and hastily open it up to find this little gem inside. 110 years later, you can enjoy the same sense of wonder and joy when you bring home this little treasure and add her to your collection! If you look for rare characters and uncommon examples, this little doll is more than just another baby, she is a very hard to find open-crown example of the 235 dome model produced as a boy... But here, she is presented as a girl with her beautiful little fairy costume and wig. It doesn't get any more precious than this!
