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."
