Jane Withers by Marilyn Henry


A souvenir booklet from the 2005 Paper Doll Convention featured this portrait of Jane Withers by Marilyn Henry. The California events--luncheons and conventions--were star-studded events, masterfully organized by Gene Maiden and Deanna Williams.

Piper Laurie, 1953, Merrill


This lovely paper doll of the actress Piper Laurie reminds me of why Merrill paper dolls are so collectible. It's a wonderful likeness of the star, the clothes are beautiful and colorful. This 1953 set contains 3 dolls, all 12 inches tall--what a treat for small hands to dress up.

The Latest Fashion

Cleveland, June 27, 1910

I was thinking you might not have any of these in your collection of postal cards that is the reason I send you this. Thank you for the one you sent me. My best regards and good wishes to both of you.

This one is no longer in my collection. I sent it to the writer who wrote this book; pick it up and you'll see why.

Also, hats will be covered in an upcoming issue of Paperdoll Review. Why not subscribe to make sure you don't miss it?
