Bulgaria Unknown & Sofia Lazarki Girl

Two dolls made in Bulgaria, not a matching pair but they go well together.

On the right a bulgarian Lazarki girl dressed in the festive costume of the Sofia region with original label attached. On Lazarki (Lazarus) day young girls take part in spring fertility dances around their village, all dressed up in regional costumes with their hair richly decorated with flowers, ribbons etc. showing they are ready to get married. Size around 25 cm.

On the left a bulgarian male shepherd or sheepherder doll from an unknown region, marked on the bottom of his stand. Size around 25 cm.
