Miniature Bone Doll- My Favorite from As in a Looking Glass, upcoming auction by Theriault's

She has to be my favorite doll from this and the Elan auction taking place on July 16th. She is the kind of doll that keeps me collecting. Read more:
Item Description: translate description 2 1/2" (6 cm.) One-piece carved bone figure of nude adult woman, posed holding a very small child in her right arm, her left arm modestly held in front of her body, with long flowing hair that flows to her hips at the back, having painted detail of facial features, stocking ties, slippers, necklace and bracelets. Excellent condition. Comments: mid-19th century, the figure is preserved in early box with mirrored interior, glass-over-engravings on the lid, and containing a little paper with ink note "Matilda Bowman to Mary Ann Harper Hutchinson, Nov 23rd, 1840".
