30-year old piece

I got a piece back from a collector to check it. It is Chester, the piece on this picture.

I was hesitating to open the box because I was afraid to see a horrible doll. But I liked it! I was pleasantly surprised to see how well the condition was of this 30 year old piece. It is a hanging doll inspired on a marionette, hand sculpted into porcelain and painted with water color. Chester lived all these years in a private house.

The only thing that shocked me was the size. Only the doll itself measures 110 cm (44 inches). That is huge comparing to the scale I work in at the moment.
