One night on the lab graveyard shift, things were slow, so I started browsing through a novelties catalog--stuff to adorn the house with. Ended up buying about $200 worth of it. One thing that caught  my eye was this elegant porcelain that stands 17 inches. I thought it was turn of the century American, but it turns out to be what English ladies wore to the horse races about 1900.

Given the expense of all that crinoline, she must have a special viewing box where all that train doesn't get dirty. This is a 5x9 color pencil drawing of the patient model. The wrist tag reads 'Eliza', but Dolly seems more apt. Oddly enough, I couldn't find any more in this size range. You'd think a hundred choices would be available, considering fashion through the ages.
