Overview

Life among members of early nineteenth-century British society comes delightfully alive in this charmingly rendered paper doll collection. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's classic tale of romance set in the English countryside, is recalled with the help of eight attractive figures, among them the engaging Bennet sisters — Elizabeth, Jane, and Lydia; Mrs. Bennet, their mother (whose sole occupation seems to be finding suitable husbands for her daughters); Mr. Bingley, an eligible bachelor; Mr. Darcy, a proud and proper gentleman; Lady Catherine, Darcy's haughty aunt; and Mr. Wickham, a dashing regimental officer.
A wardrobe of 48 period costumes takes the colorful characters from afternoon teas and weekend visits to neighborhood balls and a family wedding. Included are long-sleeved, Empire-styled dresses for the Bennet ladies to wear to church, along with simple daytime outfits topped by aprons for gardening; elegant evening attire for the ball at Netherfield, splendid bridal gowns edged with ruffles and lace for Jane and Elizabeth, and more. For the men, there are formal evening clothes, lengthy greatcoats, a military uniform, and fashionable morning coats, breeches, and top boots.
This charming collection will not only delight fans of the Austen novel — and motion picture — but will also thrill paper doll enthusiasts of all ages.

I ordered these to use as decorations for my upcoming Jane Austen Book Club meeting; This month's book is "Pride and Prejudice"! These will be beautiful additions to my decor as "table scatter", once they are cut out!Very pleased with the detailing!
