Even better if you view her large. Photograph taken at an antique store off of 19th St. in the Houston Heights.
We had a Flickr meetup the other day, and when we were out on our photo hunt we found an antique shop on a side street. The shop owner led me to the antique dolls to take their photograph. I had already spotted them, and was glad he was ok with me taking pictures.
I started snapping photos. I took pictures from many different angles. I moved this doll off the shelf – carefully – as her legs were messing up the background in another shot.
It wasn’t until I pulled her down that I spotted the SIX HUNDRED DOLLAR price tag. $600. I might have gasped out loud.
Turns out it is a vintage Madame Alexander doll from the 1940s. Or that is what he said. Either way, $600 is a crazy, crazy price for a doll.
