Additional Product Information

In an effort to increase circulation, The Boston Globe added a supplement to the Sunday edition in the mid 1890s.  For some reason, these haven't survived as well as the Boston Herald Ladies or the coffee advertising paper dolls.  The Thanksgiving Dinner and the Baby in the Bassinette appear to be complete sets.  I've never seen the dinner set but I've seen few sets of the baby.  Some pieces are glued together.  Please view the photos closely for content and condition of the lot.  .

My huge paper doll collection has come from estates, other collectors and eBay.  I don't know previous storage history and they could have been in homes where smoking has occurred.  I have a poor sense of smell at my age and I don't know if that lingers.  My collection is stored in a smoke/pet free area of my home, with a dehumidifier running 24/7.  Please see photos for condition and content.

Thanks for taking an interest in this antique paper toy.  All questions are welcome!!!
