Nellie by Helen Page
One of my early posts showed Helene from this set: A Box of 10 Cutout dolls with Dresses. Jean Sullivan noted that this set is illustrated in Mary Young's Lowe/Whitman reference book on pages 14 and 82; Young's book states the boxed set was shown in the 1945 and 1947 catalogues.
There are no identifying marks are the individual doll pamphlets, so a beginner collector finding these without the box (and without the Young reference guide) would have no idea that this is the work of a beloved paper doll artist.
