Here’s a postcard that matches these dolls. It shows how the people living in South Africa are dressed in their traditional costume.
Text on the back of the postcard: ‘Ndebele mother and child near Pretoria. …de their gaily-painted homestead and showing the colourful and creative beadwork patterns for which this tribe is noted. Moeder en kind van die Ndebele naby Pretoria …ulle opstal in vrolike kleure geverf – u sien die kleurvolle kralewerkpatrone waarvoor hierdie stam bekend is’. Postmark 1972.
