Description

Hard-paste porcelain, press-moulded, glazed, painted in enamels and gilded. She stands on a small low circular base, encrusted with yellow flowers and green foliage. In front of her she holds a brown box with pink lining, in which are closely packed a lot of trinkets, such as mirrors, scissors, spectacles, bucklers, and similar articles. In her right hand she holds a gold box. Over her closely cropped light hair she wears a broad pink hat with a green ribbon and golden brim. She also wears a white frilled blouse with short sleeves with green bows, under a green bodice trimmed with gold, with a white front laced with gold, a white skirt with pink lacing and trimmed with gold, a pale straw apron with pink stars and trimming, white stockings, and pink shoes.
