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!

No postcard available. There should be a nice postcard here that matches these dolls, to show you how the people living in Bulgaria are dressed in their traditional costume.
There is nothing suitable in our postcard books at the moment, too bad!
