Botswana Dolls with Babies

Two small but detailed dolls made of stuffed cloth, most likely from Botswana. Each doll has a baby on the back and carries a fabric bag. One doll is knitting, the other doll has a bundle on it’s head. These dolls were kindly donated see here.

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 Botswana are dressed in their traditional costume.

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

Happy collecting,
