CHARMING HAND-MADE PAPER DOLL
circa early 1900s
from the Jim Lillemoe Collection
SUPER REDUCED PRICE!
Handmade paper dolls come under the Folk Art category, being amateur, non-professional art, but having great charm. This set is identified on the backing board "Purchased April 1970, Cleveland, Ohio. Made by elderly lady in her 80s." But it does not say when it was made. Some of it looks to be late 20s-30s, yet some trims applied seem a few years later.
However it may be, the work is sweet; one doll and ten hand made colored paper outfits with little trim enhancements: 4 dresses, 2 summer playsuits, snowsuit, hooded cape, robe and pajamas. Size of the doll is 5.75" tall.
This is a one-of-a-kind art piece. Act quickly if you wish to add it to your collection.
