Hear how they jing, jing-a-ling-a,
Bright, shiny beads.
My heart will sing, sing-a-ling-a,
Wearing baubles, bangles and beads.
I'll glitter and gleam so,
Make somebody dream so,
That someday he may buy me,
A ring, ring-aling-a,
I've heard that's where it leads,
Wearing baubles and bangles and beads.
Kismet, 1953 musical by Robert Wright and George Forrest
This sultry sultana, glittering and gleaming in her molded baubles, bangles, and beads, would be the dream of any collector. By the German firm of Galluba and Hofmann, this enticing odalisque is only 2.25 inches high. She is faintly incised "9000" under her hips.
Despite her small size, she has the same excellent bisque and exquisite detail that Galluba lavished on on its larger ladies.
