This paper doll folio booklet is a scarce gem. It was made by Raphael Tuck in about 1918. The booklet is
9-1/2” by 6” with detailed cover design. When opened you find a seaside background with four dolls with their trunk and two suitcases. Inside those are various interchangeable dresses and hats.
The dolls are 4” tall. When opened flat the booklet is 21” by 6.” There is a total of 7 dresses and 3 hats. Everything is in excellent condition. There are a few light stains on the front of the booklet. The inside is crisp and clean with no stains, damage or repairs. All the clothes and hats are complete and undamaged. They are completely interchangeable between the dolls.
It is very unusual to find such a complete example of this scarce item. It is lacking only one costume and one hat. This would be a centerpiece in any collection.
