Mauritius Creole Woman

The population of the island of Mauritius is multi-ethnic due to colonization by the Dutch, French and the British. The Dutch (1638–1710) were the first to bring slaves from East Africa to Mauritius to work on ebony tree plantations. This doll is made of stuffed cloth and represents a Creole woman whose ancestors are of African origin. Her dress is strongly European influenced. Marked 'Ile Maurice' on her apron. Size 25 cm.
