Scenes from the 2007 Competition
Every Paper Doll Convention provides the opportunity for collectors to showcase rarities from their collection. In earlier posts you saw original art work that was entered in the competition from Margaret Brown's childhood collection and the Elizabeth Taylor tribute book by David Wolfe's brother Charlie. Here are some vintage and antique paper dolls that were also part of the competition room in San Antonio. I'll need help identifying these paper dolls and their owners!
Update from Jean Sullivan: "The first doll with the dark hair and the red ribbons on her slip is mine. She is a 16 inch "Woolworth-type" paper doll. She is shown in Mary Young's 20th Century Paper Dolls ref. book on page 328 under 'unknown publishers.' "
