A two-sided 11” Baby Blue paper doll with three (3) two-sided costumes by McLoughlin Bros. c1876. It is from the Dolly Varden Dolls series, which introduced a dramatic change in the style of previous dolls, with costumes executed in as Marian Howard says “gaudy, flamboyant hues, thus presenting a less attractive appearance”. Although they may have been a bit outlandish at the time, they seem rather decorative and a bit of a novelty today. The set lacks the envelope, hats and a cape. Light foxing on Baby Blues face. Edge wear on costumes.
