Olivia is concerned. She has been assisting Mama in the 'Great Move' of the 'Doll Room' and she has found this disturbing object. Being a German child, she has no knowledge of the private, mysterious world of the unapproachable French Ladies that inhabit her realm. As she studied it's alien surface and proportions, it has occurred to her that it resembles a large petrified sweetmeat [ now unrecognizable ] left by some ruffian doll that had come in for repairs and rewarded the efforts by stealing one of Mama's pies! Before Olivia's overactive imagination could formulate a opinion either way, Mama's voice suddenly pealed through the air, There it is!!!, I have been looking for that pate for months!! Sweeping down, she plucked it smartly from Olivia's little hands. Thank you dear!, she said. Since the lovely lady who once owned this pate is no longer with us, we shall share it with another.
This very small cork pate measures a mere 1 5/8" x 1 7 16" It is in excellent condition with no softness or crumbling. Very hard to find in this size and condition.
