This is a two page ad for the IDEX Premiere 2007 January 27-29th. The paper dolls were created by Judy M Johnson in 2005. The first page has a lovely woman with ball joints and two outfits. The second page has a girl with 2 outfits and joints and a teddy bear with two outfits. IDEX 2005
These beautiful creative handmade paper dolls are certainly unusual. The set features four heads with long 'tab's that slip in the back of gowns. The back of the dresses have a bit of cardboard with a gap for the heads to slip into. the outfits are most likely cut from old catalog pages and almost all are black and white. If I had to date this, I would say early 1900s pre 1920s. A very special part of my collection.
A single page paper doll from Wee Wisdom magazine. This doll features red and black coloring. She has 2 tops, 2 bottoms, and 2 outfits with 1 hat. Designed by Edith Smith and drawn by Dorothy Wagstaff. I don't have a date on this one. Update the date July 1951. Thanks again Sally!
