|The pictures show a view of the (2) Colorful 1895 Boston Sunday Globe Newspaper Premium Forbes Paper Dolls With Clothes in this lot. One of these dolls is dated 1895 and the other one is believed to be from the same year. These were found together in a collection that was purchased. |
The first doll has a slip or dress underneath and includes a dress. This doll is not marked.
The second doll is wearing a dress and includes a dress with blouse. Sections under her blouse have instructions. At the bottom it is marked as follows:
PAT. JULY 30, 1895.
FORBES LITH. CO. BOSTON.
To judge the sizes the taller one measures 6-3/16'' tall. These appear to be in excellent or better condition as pictured.
