This print is part of a series of designs for toy theaters by Benjamin Pollock. Popular amusements in the 19th century, toy theaters allowed children to re-enact plays at home, and Pollock’s prints often provided scenic backdrops and colorful characters. Karasz used this print and others from Pollock’s Scenes in Cinderella in her design for the Cinderella wallpaper on view nearby.
