From early historical rarities so precious many collectors have not known of their existence, to popular culture icons, the paper doll collection of Shirley Fischer reflects the ardent pursuit of a passionate and intelligent collector. Shirley Fischer of Sylvania, Ohio was so distinguished in the paper doll field that in 2004, having collected paper dolls most of her adult life, she befittingly received the special award of Distinguished Paper Doll Ambassador at the annual Paper Doll Convention. This collection spans 150 years, from 1790 through the 1940's. It is likely that few collections exist today with the extent of early historical rarities as the Fischer Collection. The collection includes early dolls from Germany, France and England and virtually all of the early American paper There are, in fact, over 350 lots in the catalog, including many paper dolls to be sold in lots, giving opportunity to connoisseur collectors, novices and paper doll and ephemera dealers, as well as traditional doll collectors who have learned the value of paper dolls as costume study. Over 400 color photographs.
