It has a yellow chiffon dress .there is a symbol on left eye that looks like an( A), the right eye looks like a ( +) sign. The back right shoulder on dress has same symbol in bold blue

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
