Thank you Loord74, the response to this request is really overwhelmingling!  Peter, thank your wife for that observation.  This pic is going in a book of poems for her great granddaughter.  The first poem was read to her as a child, 2 porcelain dolls mocking a rag doll! Makes the pic even more apropos.   Best...Lisa

My pleasure, Lisa. By the way, welcome to Rootschat!
I wasn't quite sure what that was up the back on your mum's right, so I showed my wife and she took one look at it and said it's a porcelain doll lying on its back on a box. I hope it brings back memories for you.
Cheers, Peter.

It looks like she also got a matching set of rocket propelled grenade launchers.

Hahaha...such a different time. Guns and cigarettes!!! There should have been a martini glass to complete the memory.  Thanks again. The book was such a hit.   Best...Lisa
