So what was wrong with the girl figure? Admittedly, she had had a hard life. The figure (not the chair though) had broken off at the waist and across the arms and had been reglued. Similarly, the base had a crack and a missing chunk. Everything was stuck together with dark glue that oozed out of every join. Hardly a pretty sight, but in reality, aside from the missing piece on the base, everything was there. The book and hands were untouched and there were no missing parts. As awful as the figure looked, it required minimal restoration to bring it back to life. And, given that her companion was just sitting and waiting for her, the collector went ahead and committed. He calls the little girl "a survivor', and I am pleased she has made it!
