SOHS# 990.40.13

Paper dolls have been an inexpensive alternative to three dimensional dolls since the 18th Century. These late Victorian manufactured paper dolls have been well used. Their clothing is homemade and each tissue paper outfit is carefully crafted. Each outfit has a matching hat featuring a slit that allows the hat to sit on top of the doll’s heads.
