A Foundling



This little girl is very similar to an Ada Lum doll in that her fingers and ears are stitched on. But she is a good deal smaller and has no markings other than a few blue dotted lines (that show she had a pattern printed on her to guide sewing) and three Chinese characters on her leg (which may mean "only 12" or "only 20" - εδΊŒζ‰). She looks as if she's lead a full and adventurous life. She has a facial scar and many stains. And she had an additional handmade brown knit kimono-like jacket that she wore when she arrived. If anyone has any information or ideas to the story of her life please let me know. And thank you to the folks in England who sent her my way!
