DARLING EDITH AND HER WARDROBE
DARLING EDITH is part of Raphael Tuck & Sons' "New Series of Dressing Dolls," something of the ancestor to modern Barbie-type dolls. Though EDITH'S friends HILDA and MURIEL were both unique in appearance, their different outfits could be mixed and matched, as they were all the same size. A lovely paper toy for fashion-forward children.
