I have had some lucky finds recently.
Three Indian ladies, about two inches high. £1! They have such detail. The legs, arms, body and face are wrapped wool. A few stitches for the face and voila! They are mounted on tiny painted wooden discs and have the initials DC and 1/50 written in pencil on the base.
Last but not least is this little black lady. She is a brooch, and was not found by me but by Linda Sue. She is only about an inch high and yet still very detailed. A tiny embroidered face, an orange bead necklace, grosgrain ribbon clothes and a little cotton petticoat.
