A 6 pencil drawn adolescent girl paper doll with 19 handmade costumes and 15 pinafores.  Note the cut bow closure at back and a 3 infant with 11 layettes, 4 dresses and 2 mantles.  Many constructed of decorated paper.  They were given with a hand constructed  pop-up valentine note for Myra H. Gould of Vermont, presumably the receiver of the paper dolls.  The dolls were most likely made by the giver at an earlier time in her life. Dolls appear to be c1860s-70s and note from the 1880s..
