There is a portrait of Carrie that I would guess was painted by Alessandro Ossani in 1874, when a portrait was painted by him of her brother Sidney Schiff.

The account of Carrie Schiff's life is interesting, and pretty much accurate. The author covers her mother's divorce from John Scott Cavell, the Schiff family's lifestyle and travels, Carrie's life in Faversham with her husband, a doctor and mayor of the town who was knighted, and the raffling of the doll in 1943 to raise funds for the Red Cross.
