As near as I can tell, Mom bought it a few weeks before I was born.
I landed my first real job in 1966. One of the first things I did was to start collecting antiques. This lady was my first. She stands about fourteen inches tall on her rosewood base and she cost me all of seven dollars. I bought her in the shop of Mrs Nora Leahy a friend of my mother and herself an antique in her eighties.
