and I saw her from a distance and made a beeline for her!
Her price tag said $48.....I thought that was cheap and reasonable, but still asked if he would take less for her. "How about $30?" He got her at an estate sale and believes she's probably from the 40's. I think he's right about that, even though there aren't any vendor marks on her.
Love the fabric covering her too, it very aged and has a lovely pattern, you probably can't tell from my less-than-great photos.
As I was carrying her to my car a lady saw me with her and shouted, "Wow, how much did you get her for?" I told her and she asked if I was a seamstress (not so much) or an artist? I said the latter, and she wanted to know if there were any more forms in there. Told her this was the only one I saw....I feel like I got so lucky!
I brought her home and cleaned the cobwebs off her and now am clearing a space in my studio to proudly display her. And she'll need a name, of course, so any ideas?
I'll post again soon with some other finds..........
