Animal Series Paper Dolls

Linda is the author of the blog called "The Paper Collector" which is a treasure trove of paper dolls, vintage ephemera and advertisements. I adore the illustrations of the Animal Series of Paper Dolls, cerca 1890s featuring an owl, a pig and other animals dressed as human beings. 

From her blog: "Here's Mark Woodcock on these fabulous animal paper dolls: Here are a few uncut advertising paper dolls. They're 4.5"x7". Four of them are stamped on the back "U.S. Standard Baking Powder" and one "Flag Coffee." They're not numbered so I don't know how many were in the series. I'd be curious to hear if anyone has others. For people who collect animal paper dolls, these are amazing."

Hi I have seen some other series of cards from around the same era these were Robin Hood Typhoo Tea Cards Series. the printing on the animal cards looks like the ones on the Robin Hood Typhoo cards so maybe they were also printed by Typhoo as well
