A deadpan doll anchored by twisted crepe paper is the centerpiece of a little West Covina girl's birthday party table. The doll has a yarn 'fro. The little girl wears Bettie Page bangs and a bow on top of her head. Cupcakes, each with a single candle, are served. A yellow chrome dinette set and California Pottery, displayed in a classic mid-century modern china cabinet, make a colorful and stylish backdrop. The dishes were manufactured by Metlox and Free Form is the name of the spectacular futuristic pattern.CLICK FOR MORE!
