Work and Play, c. 1880s

Clark's O.N.T. Double Dolls, "Work and Play." Unlike a lot of other advertising dolls of this type, this has only a changeable head, not the head, shoulders and arms. This is a lot like the very early paper dolls of the early 1800s, Fanny Gray, etc, where the head was slipped into different costumes and scenes to tell a story.
