Comic Proflies describes itself as

“To enable the happy possessor to form 13824 varieties of one to their own likeing. Seen here are eyes and mouths and noses, from which you will pay pick and choose, Each its peculiar charm disclose, which if you're wise you’ll refuse,
For if you miss the handsome faces, You're compensated by grimaces,"

(this is on the box lid but not readable as the lid is so rubbed so copied from another source)

There appears to have been two sets made by Merryman Makeface Esq, Comic Profiles (heads) and Funny Physiognomy (bodies) - copy in The Edinburgh Museum of Childhood and mentioned in the EPCS Magazine January 2002
Very strange faces appear not unexpect by the description.

Condition - Comic Profiles / Cards - 24/24 tops 23/24 noses 24/24 chins - all in good condition / Box - original - top very faded and difficult to read. / No rules - maybe the box lid was enough

Postage / As postage often changes it will be provided at time of purchase. Postage will be at cost rounded up to the nearest £1.00 to cover packaging.
