Finland Dolls Munsala & Turku by Martta Nukketeollisuus
Three rubber dolls, all made by Martta Nukketeollisuus in Turku, Finland. The Martta association produced dolls between 1908 – 1974.
The two dolls on the left with the white aprons are wearing the traditional costume of Munsala. Munsala was merged together with two other municipalities into Uusikaarlepyy in 2013. About 90% of the inhabitants speak Swedish there.
The doll on the right was identified with the help of Google. An online search showed images of similar dolls that were marked as ‘Turun Täti’ meaning ‘Aunt from Turku’.
Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!
