Kate Castleton c. 1895

It's always fascinating to come across ephemera relating to a celebrity from an earlier time. We can only imagine how Kate Castleton captured the fancy of her adoring public.

Here are Sheryl Jaeger's notes on this lovely set:
The Idol of the Fun Loving Public Kate Castleton - a folder with set of three "books" each with two dolls to punch-out with costumes. Includes 5 ½” paper doll of the 19th-century actress and costumes from various roles. Published by Forbes c1895.
