Paper Girl Doll
View Full Image
This is a girl paper doll identified as 'Violet.' Over a petticoat, she wears a white dress with thin pink stripes and blue ribbons. Although it was popular starting with the 1890's to use paper dolls as advertisements for women's magazines and underwear, these paper dolls advertised McLaughlin's Coffee and one doll with dress came with every bag. Like the cloth advertising dolls, these paper dolls represent the continuing growth of a mass consumer U.S. market.
