  1. I also have this item and ran across yours in Google images while trying to research mine. Mine does still have the toasts, 16 total, on the back if you would be interested I will email you a pic of the back to complete your post. I am curious to know if you know the resale price of this item? Mine was amongst some other items and being I do not collect mermaids I’d like to see her to a more appreciative home.

    1. Sorry about the late reply, Vickie, your email landed in spam for the longest time!
      It was a gift, so not sure of the price, wasn’t too expensive because of the condition.
