A STRANGE DRESS! The child’s flesh tones are so perfect and that red seed necklace is still resoundingly brilliant yet the pigments that were applied to her dress don’t equal any color in nature that I have ever seen. Since I bought this now resealed sixth size pixie without seals it might have been possible that the fabric color was altered. At another angle the dress appears to be blue. Someone else did manage to scratch the entire periphery in places by being careless. There are also two longer thin scratches beginning at the mat?s edge on the right and traversing towards the girl, but not touching her. However the kid simply commanded my attention even with the small flaws and odd coloring. A leather case stays together with a cloth hinge.
