Somehow it is not very satisfying when these tiny dags are blown up, especially when they aren't in the best shape to begin with. I've done all I can for this lovely woman. I hope she approves.
At some point this dag was taken to the studio of Ivy & Co., at the corner of Washington and West streets in Boston, and rehoused in a 1/9-plate case with a gold painted paper mat inserted. A promotional card was used as the paper backing. You can it here: www.flickr.com/photos/60861613@N00/6858204263/in/photostream
