SWEETHEART Paper Dolls
Restored Saalfield, 1953 Book, from FMN Publishing
Art by Lucille Wallace
This is restored from a book called "Romance Paper Dolls" but we already have a book by that name, so we called it SWEETHEART, indicated by the sweet couple on the cover and the scattered hearts in the design. Turns out it is a variation of the "Diana Lynn" book with the dolls in the same poses as hers, and the same clothes pages too.
See Diana Lynn version:
There are 3 dolls, all pretty ladies, painted by L. Wallace, an artist we know little about, but recently I spoke with a cousin of hers..and Ms. Wallace was from Pennsylvania. Not sure if the costumes are by Lucille, but likely so. Ms. Wallace also painted "Charming" and "Pert and Pretty" both of which we have on this site as restored books.
Stapled book, finished size 8.5"x11", in crystal clear seal-top bag. 80# covers, 32# interior. All archival materials.
