Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help--but that Imgur link won't work for me. Can you upload the photos here?

Did you try logging in to my account info? the album is entitled Small ceramic doll. That is the link Imgur gave me when I posted. There is one image attached to the question. Cardboard is attached at the bottom of the doll.

Another person can't log into your Imgur account. If you are logged in, you will see that you can cut and paste a specific URL that lets others see your images.

I have reposted the images on Imgur under "pie steamer?" and it is public. if you put the above in the search, the pictures come up. It may just be a doll part as there is no hole in the top to release steam.
