This is a lovely book with two lovely young or teen age girls. Phyllis looks older than Brenda  to me. This is from Saalfield  and is #1744.  The printed price on the book is .10, so I am assuming it is from the 1940’s – Pause to look up in Mary Youngs Saalfield book to see if I can find a year. It was reprinted in 1957 with a different cover, so guess I will stick with the 1940’s for my book.

There is a front cover, and 3 more pages of clothes which will be posted over the next couple of days.

Well I sat down at the computer last night,  a little cold and was ready to post the balance of this set.  Ha! let it get cold in Fort Lauderdale and everything comes to a stand still.  I could not get the internet to come up.  Well it is colder today than yesterday, but Korey has the internet up.

This is from Saalfield #2411 published in 1942 – Hope you enjoyed this set.

This is an almost perfect cut set, I think only one or two outfits even have the tabs bent – I bought it cut from a dealer at one of the paper doll parties I went to this year so must have been Lousie Leeks in Ohio. It is a 12 page posting, so will post 6 today and the balance tomorrow.

The artist is Betty Campbell, a most coveted artist of paper dolls by today’s collector’s of the older paper doll sets.

Well last night we posted the first three of six dolls in this set, now we will finish up the set tonight with the last three of six dolls.  I really have enjoyed scanning these as I love the fashion paper dolls of the early 1940’s, that is when I played with them the most.  Being cut I could fit the costumes on them as I scanned, had fun.

The cover is in very bad shape and I am afraid to scan it.  This is number 981 by Whitman Publishing.

Enclosed are photographs of the six models and a notice that this set was designed by Ruth Wood.  This sheet will serve as the cover

This set was done by Hilda Miloche and Wilma Kane.  My eyes are bad tonight and I cannot read the company that published it.

There were other sets in this series and I would love to find them or color copies of them.  I do know it is from the 1940’s.
