Male fashion doll, ca. 1812

Contributed by Maine Historical Society


The male doll shows the fashions of the early decades of the nineteenth century -- a velvet top hat, wool cut-away coat, slim breeches and high leather boots.

Fashion dolls helped people in Europe and America in areas remote from fashion centers learn about the latest styles.
