1890s Cornell Enameline Die Cut Standee. This item stands approx. 5 1/2 inches tall with a back that folds down to make it stand. Colors are great. The item was made by J.L.Prescott & Co in New York in the late 1890s. As stated on the back, it was part of a set of nine dolls representing different colleges. To get the dolls you had to mail in three 2 cent stamps and then you were mailed the dolls.

The dolls are made from Enameline boxes. Enameline was a stove polish used in the late 1890s. The card is of a young boy holding a rowing oar used in crew and has a "C" on his chest. The Cornell University Yell, "Cornell! I yell yell yell! Cornell!" is printed on the back of the card. Still in working order.
