Albania Dolls Malësi e Madhe & Zerqan

Two Albanian costume dolls. The doll on the left is wearing the traditional costume of a married woman of Malësi e Madhe which is located in the highlands of northwestern Albania (Shkodër County). Typical for this costume is the Xhubleta, a bell-shaped skirt made of heavy wool felt. On the right a doll wearing the traditional costume of a girl from the village of Zerqan which is located in the Dibër county. Both dolls are marked ‘Albania’ at the front of their stands.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

No postcard available. There should be a nice postcard here that matches these dolls, to show you how the people living in Albania are dressed in their traditional costume.

There is nothing suitable in our postcard books at the moment, too bad!

Happy collecting,
