South Africa Two Female Dolls

Two female black dolls dressed in the same style, both made in South Africa. Each wearing a different type of print, the fabric seems to be from the 1960’s. Their costume clearly has European infuences. I don’t want to remove their clothing to look for any marks.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

No postcard available. There should be a nice postcard here that matches these dolls, to show you how the people living in South Africa are dressed in their traditional costume.

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

Happy collecting,
