The reproduction that finally fooled us was made by Darlene Lane of Tucson, Arizona It resided proudly at Shandele (Mildred Seeley's home) with her authentic Bru collection for many years. Notes: Her slip and pantaloons tie closures are in tight knots so i cannot remove them entirely. Beautifully sweet expression on the tiny little face, wearing hand-made costume, hat, and undergarments, the mignonette has rare wood ball-jointing at elbows.
