As today, companies in the past were always looking for ways to advertise their products. Many turned to trade cards or other forms of paper advertising, such as this fold out sweet paper doll. The doll advertises the virtues of Enameline Stove Polish made by the J.L. Prescott & Co.
A complete set consisted of 6 (flowers) paper dolls. So what little girl wouldn't press her mother to buy the product again and again. This particular doll is Rose.
Made of heavy card, the doll stands 5" tall. A wonderful lithograph in nice condition. A nice addition to a trade card or paper doll collection.
