I thank you for taking time to stop in andhaving a closer look at my sale item. It was purchased at an estatesale, for your consideration to offer.
This is a a Victorian Paper Doll set by Raphael Tuck & Sons. Name of doll is "Sweet Abigail". From "The Prince and Princess Series of Dressing Dolls". Designed by Marguerite McDonald. I do have other sets to list from this series. All are free ship, you may want to purchase all five sets.
There are six pieces in this set. The doll is about 9 inches tall. The doll has her name, in ink, on the back, and some clothes are written on the back as Princess #4 Sweet Abigail.
I am listing, these sets as they came to me. Each in a business envelope, written on the front the name of the Prince or Princess. The piecesare old, so flaws in the form of age and use are expected. Some fading to the colors. Frayed corners, and folds. Other issues that would be expected with age. There may be signs of old glue on the back of the doll where the head is attached. If these dolls came with a stand, there are no stands included.
THESE ARE NOT ORIGINAL, BUT REPRODUCTIONS, THEY ARE STILL VINTAGE HOWEVER. AND OVER 25 YEARS OLD.
The Raphael Tuck paper dolls were very popular and more than one company has made reproductions. The previous owner of these dolls had some reproductions and kept them in envelopes apparently. The original Tuck dolls have printing on the back sides along with a seal of sorts (like a logo). The onesI have listed come from a paper doll book called- Raphael Tuck Antique Paper Dolls in Full Color. It was published by Dover in 1987, so they are 26 years old, Please do not assume I am selling original R. Tuck paper dolls. In the Dover book, Lordly Lionel is the only 6" doll and the rest are 9", as inmy set. Also, the previous owner numbered them by the order they appear in the book.
