Cuba National Costume Doll Checkered Dress

Doll marked ‘Cuba’, wearing a checkered dress. The outfit shows European and African influences. The doll is made without legs, there’s just a wire stick covered with fabric under her skirt.

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 Cuba are dressed in their traditional costume.

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

Happy collecting,
