Tin head found in dessert

AFTER ready to go home

This tin head Minerva was found in the dessert on the old family homestead, the owner could not bear to throw her away because she could have been a treasured doll of a long ago relative.  The tin head Minerva dolls were a German product, fashioned after the china head dolls.  The lowbrow china head was a typical model.  It was thought that the tin would be more durable than a breakable china head.
