South Africa Dolls Johannesburg Marked PMI

Four black South African dolls of the same type. Three of them are visibly marked at the back ‘Made in South Africa, Johannesburg, Cat 22, PMI, P.O.Box 1821’. The mark on the female doll is probably covered by the baby that she carries on her back.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

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

Happy collecting,
