Cuba Dolls with Maracas

Two little Cuban souvenir dolls. A matching pair, both marked ‘Cuba’ on their stands. They are musicians or dancers, each playing a pair of maracas. A maraca is an handheld instrument made of dried squash with a wooden handle. It’s filled with seeds to make the sound.

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 Cuba are dressed in their traditional costume.

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

Happy collecting,
