Our Sailor Bob paper doll, all original vintage 1940s in the original envelope. Bob is a 10-inch heavy cardboard doll with a variety of World War II uniforms in very good condition. From Whitman Publishing, designed by Hilda Miloche and Wilma Kane, product #3980. Includes 1 Sailor Bob paper doll, 5 neatly cut uniforms plus pea coat and deck sweater. The uniform caps are missing.
Condition is very good, bright and clean overall. Paper doll has bend below chin, highlighted in close-up photo, and paper residue on back from original envelope. Cut clothing is in excellent condition with vivid color. Just one small tear at inside edge of leg of uniform at left in photo (see close-up pic). The original envelope is in very good condition with intact back flap. It is unusual to find intact, as the doll was generally cut from the front of the envelope rather than carefully peeled off as in this case. A great vintage military paper doll from World War II, honoring the men who served.
Measures 10-1/2 inches x 9- inches
