Bulgaria Dolls Drinking Wine

Two male dolls made in Bulgaria from an unknown region, sitting and drinking around a wooden wine barrel. A jug should be standing on top of the barrel but is missing. Marked ‘a toast to health’ under their stand. One hand with cup was also missing but I replaced it using felt for the hand and a green wooden bead for the cup.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

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

Happy collecting,
