Pretty in Pink...really pretty!

I've seen a lot of things in my many years of antiquing and thrifting, but this one takes the cake!! Really....I was in an antique mall today and spied this beauty in a locked case (you know the ones we all hate because we can't see a price or touch the item).

Well, I went to get one of the owner's so he could open the case for me and I could take a closer look at her, she looked to perfect, you know? Not a chip, not a stain, not a rip, I'm talking MINT people! Then I thought, "Maybe my mind's playing tricks on me, maybe she's a  ~shudder~ reproduction! Could it be? No, as far as I know these chalkware beauties haven't been reproduced.

She doesn't even have any pin holes in her dress....amazing!

She came with this plastic case (not kidding!) without a lid...hahahaha! Hilarious, but it's probably what's kept her so clean all these years...and she fits p-e-r-f-e-c-t-l-y inside of it, like it was made for her. Now I don't know about you, but I don't  think when these were produced way back in the 20's (or thereabouts) that there were plastic containers to house them, do you?
Weird how she fits so perfectly in there though, don't you think?
Oh.....and she's in my Etsy tonight....call me crazy! I'll probably change my mind before the weekend over because I can't stop looking at her.....it's obsessed I am....:).
Have a lovely Labor Day weekend my friends!
