Early Republic fashion doll, ca. 1787

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

In 1787, English styles were the height of fashion in Germany, France, and America. Large bonnets trimmed with feathers were popular.

Fashion dolls, dressed in the latest styles, often were sent between royal courts in Europe, and later to America, to keep people apprised of current fashion in eras before magazines became the primary source of information about fashion.
