Shackman/Merrimack and Co., who held production for over 100 years in New York City and now of Battle Creek Michigan, produced these darling Dionne Quint Paper dolls. B. Shackman using exceptional color die-cutting and embossing is well known for its superior quality reproductions of dozens of antique paper dolls including the Dionne Quint collection.
Add this vintage set to your paper doll collection. Original paper dolls would have been in the 1930′s. This reproduction set was probably produced in the 1980′s. Good condition no tears rips or missing pages. Only one set available.
The 1930s – 1950s probably holds the title ”Golden Age of Paper Dolls ” as their popularity during those years has yet to be equaled. During the economic downturn of the 1930’s paper dolls could still be afforded and manufactured though on lesser-quality paper.
I was a child of the 1950’s and can certainly remember loving and playing with some of those original paper dolls!
Even though paper dolls dominated many areas such as comics movie stars and story book figures the Dionne Quintuplets held a strong market for their manufacturers. Born May 28 1934 in Ontario Canada they were the first quintuplets to survive infancy and the only female identical set of five ever recorded. Karen Jordan writes for the Canadian History some interesting facts about their births life and deaths.
