Tamaki Paper Doll

Here's the last cut Companion Doll in my collection (unless I discover another hidden gem stored away in a box somewhere!)

Margery May's Japanese Friend Tamaki by Emma Musselman. March 1921. This one is backed with glued-on linen, an old-fashioned way of fortifying a paper cut-out for hours of play without tearing. Someone marked 20 on the back of the doll and on the dress tabs, probably a collector who wanted to keep track of what went with what.
