"A French doll in porcelain and kid leather dressed by Simone of Paris in the 1870s".
Ooh La La. This doll looks as though she is about to go travelling, depending on the season she will be able to keep warm with the fur stoles as she takes the train from Paris, the porter loading her trunk, or perhaps she will hoist the parasol as she strolls down a boulevard. What amazes me about this card is the pristine appearance of both clothes and dolls. I suspect my dolls were not as well cared for and there was no trunk for their clothing, although I did have a shoe box which performed the same function.
Here I am on my 5th birthday complete with party dress and a selection of dolls
