Martha Washington paper doll, c.. 1880s

This is one of those dolls you could bend to sit or stand, and amazingly, she was never folded in the middle by a little girl. Perhaps mom advised her to store her away carefully. McLaughlin Coffee produced a lovely series of First Ladies of the world, and Mrs. Washington, of course, was included. Each doll came with a piece of furniture, and Mrs. W had this elegant bookcase.
