Charles Butterworth

A movie Dressograph paper doll from the St Louis Dispatch Newspaper.  This was mounted on plain paper to keep it from tearing.  I've gotten a new printer with a new wide bed scanner.  I've scanned 1 notebook full of these, two more to go.  My new scanner can scan up to 11 X 17 and print up to 13X15.  It's quite, but a bit slow.  Some of the paper dolls in the notebooks are only photocopies, but I will post them since these newspaper dolls are so hard to find.  Most are dated, this one was not. 1930s.

Magazine Teens

Two teen magazine dolls from late 80s or early 90s.  The clothes seem 'baggy' and very bright.  Many of the outfits remind of of my teen Skipper doll.  Two dolls can share four outfits and twelve mix and match pieces along with three shoes and three hats.   I believe this is from a children's magazine but I do not know which magazine.  If you have any more information about these dolls, please let me know.

A Patriotic President's Day Paper Doll

Yes, President's Day was yesterday...  But I drew this yesterday.  I used the second doll from the sewing pattern I sampled for the Valentine's Paper doll.  This doll features red, white, and blue wardrobe of 6 outfits and two shoes.  I finally got my tablet working again, so I'll try to keep working on projects.

Magazine Friends

These two paper dolls are from a children's magazine.  I'm afraid that's all I know. Based on the clothing, I would say 80s or 90s era.The two dolls have 9 outfits they can share. My favorite is the blue with the bows.  If you have any information regarding these dolls, please let me know!

Part 1!  Here are ten pages of 1920s era scrap from newspapers, catalogs, ect featuring men, women, children, and even dolls.  This was purchased as a large lot from ebay.  Some dolls have bends, tears, rips, missing limbs, discoloration, stains, or musty smell.  Some still need to be ironed before they can be scanned. Some are in black and white and others in full color.

Greeting Card Partial Set

I'm almost positive this is a Hallmark Greeting card paper doll.  I'm also almost positive she is missing some outfits.  Included here is 1 doll, 2 dresses, 1 hat, and one cutout figure.  The clothing and doll have some embossing.
