And one more shot of pretty Hattie, because I think she's fabulous:
Now, if I can lure you all behind the cut, I'd be interested in knowing whether anyone has seen or heard of this artist head (or its maker) before!
I found this auction on Y!J, not in time to bid on the head; it only went for 5000 yen, !@#*$@! http://page7.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/g96112149 The auction text seems to ID it as "MAO [asao] individual dealer head," but I'm not sure whether MAO is the sculptor's or the mold's name.
Anybody recognize the mold or the maker from doll events in Japan, perchance?
