Today I’d like to share another paper doll book featuring a doll or dolls called Mary. Naomi brought these over yesterday for me to photograph. This one is confusingly called “The Two Mary’s”. I say confusing because there are four dolls and I have no idea which two are Mary.
This book is a reproduction set. The originals were published by Merrill in 1950. The set features two adult dolls and two little girls. The reproduction does not come with notes so I don’t know if they are mother and daughter or big and little sister sets. I don’t know if the two adults are Mary or the two little girls. My money would be on the children.
It’s not a large set, only a few outfits for each pair of dolls but they are quite nice. They have nightwear, streetwear, party dresses and western-style clothing. Here are the girls and their outfits.
