Doll from Bonaire dressed in traditional costume, holding a crochet basket filled with flowers. She’s a lady of African decent or mixed race. Marked ‘Bonaire’ in handwriting on her apron. Bonaire is an island in the Leeward Antilles in the Caribbean Sea and an overseas region of the Netherlands.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

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

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

Happy collecting,
