Mary Queen of Scots, c. 1890s

The McLaughlin Coffee series of eight paper dolls, The Queens, came with one costume and one piece of furniture. These were meant to be folded to sit or stand. Luckily, this one had not been folded much at all when I found it at the postcard show last weekend. Two years ago, when I first started this blog, I posted Marie Antoinette from the same series. I only had the doll for that one, but the reverse showed she came with a sideboard, of all things. But I guess it makes sense given the legendary appetites of Marie Antoinette. The figures are beautifully rendered in this series
