Couldn't resist buying this and it came cheap at £10 inc. postage.

What attracted me was it looked like a die-cut that had been given a frame and plain background and probably had Crawfords ( Biscuits ) at the top.

So here she is now, she stands about 20 inches. Had some restoration top right of bonnet and hair and I used the spare gold strip to tidy up the base.

Bit of a fake I suppose but I'm quite happy to live with her.

Thanks for the comments,she displays well Had my doubts when I saw how thick the card was ! I had to cut out roughly with a knife and shape and finish with sandpaper and some tiny files !!!
