HALF DOLL ANGEL BASKET Head, Hands, Wings, Puffy Satin! - eBay (item 310071258856 end time Aug-03-08 18:24:01 PDT)
This angel basket features a snowflake satin fabric inside and out with a blonde angel half doll with gold wings. Her face is gorgeous and wistful, her hands graceful, made of composition. The basket is round and cushy, trimmed with gold bead strings, a gold rose and bow.
I see no maker's mark, but I suspect a tag was cut off the bottom. There's a sliver of a tag remaining in the seam.
What would you put into a basket like this? Small Christmas presents? Pretty ornaments? Gift envelopes of money? I know it's summer, but work with me here. You know how the holidays arrive faster each year.
Or this could be an extra fancy sewing basket/pin cushion for a special project, like embroidery. The basket could hold your scissors, thread, needles, measuring tapes.
