I think it says a lot about my over-familiarity with kitsch, that I rather like this little ornament. There was a funny trend in the 1960s, in the US in particular, to portray cute little girls with their eyes closed. (That's another book waiting to be compiled - 'Dolls and Figures with Closed Eyes'.) There was another trend to put 'real' hair on ceramic figurines. However, the trend, if it ever existed, to have long-necked girls growing out of plants is unknown to me.
