During the 1800's, many manufacturers of toy lead soldiers made paper toy soldiers and paper dolls. Many were made by McLoughlin toy Co.
I believe the late 1800’s is the time frame for this offering.
Die-Cuts like this were/are called “Victorian Paper Scrap”. They were specially printed and die cut pieces meant to go in scrapbooks. Victorians were big on scrapbooks. Many have been reproduced, but they are marked as such.
Condition: VERY GOOD..colors are still bright and vibrant as is the detail. No complete bends, moisture damage, severe peel (slight where they may have been attached to a tab holder at one time and can CLEARLY be seen in photo) and no tears etc. Slight EXPECTED yellowing to the back side only. Have been preserved pressed in the CORRECT dark environment.
