The New York Herald, Paris edition, Paper Dolls, 1895

A Christmas gift last year from my husband: a reproduction of a paper doll page from the New York Herald Paris edition, March 10, 1895. "Actors and Actresses as Children's Dolls." 

The actors are Mlle. De Boncza, M. Magnier and Mlle. Tessandier.

Wanda De Boncza was a French actress of Polish origin who performed with the Comedie-Francaise. 

Pierre Magnier

Aimee Tessandier


  1. These are wonderful. I love the artist's style.

  2. How fascinating. I'm sure my mother told me she had Shirley Temple paper dolls when she was little. Probably about 1935?
