DOLLS FROM CONGO

Today I am adding some dolls from CONGO.  I am fascinated by their unusual hair-style!  Such beautiful dolls!
Every time I see dolls such as these lovely hand-made ones, I imagine a little group of local women lovingly working on them, and making them to sell.  (Aren't we lucky?)

As always, you can see more information, and photos of these dolls, on my website (www.worldcostumedolls.com).  Just put the Code Number into the search box on the Inventory page (on the HOME page, and they will come up).

 I am also showing A COUPLE OF PHOTOS  (from one of my recent walks).
I am showing these, as I often get requests to see more of our beautiful views, here in Wales. 
Thank you.

 * * *

Although I am at last having just a little more time to work on my website and my blog, I still have LOADS of beautiful dolls to list, (but I need to live to the age of at least 110 years, to finish listing them!)

A DOLL FROM AZERBAIJAN

Today I am listing this hand made doll from AZERBAIJAN.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 
I originally listed this post as a doll having been made by Elmira Abbasley, but even though the label states it is, this is NOT so! I have been in touch with the daughter of Elmira, who says the doll is a COPY made by a previous worker for Elmira, WHO HAS USED Elmira Abbasley's name. I have since removed the label, and stated that the doll is an Azerbaijan folklore doll. It just goes to show that even when there is a name tag on a doll, it is NOT always correct. I will photograph the doll again, without the label. 

I have recently had a new computer and it has taken a little while to get used to it, but I have now found where everything is!  So now I will be able to add on more of my dolls.  So once again, thank you all for your patience.  I really appreciate it!

As always, more pictures, and more information about this doll can be seen on my website.  www.worldcostumedolls.com   Just put the Code No. in the search box on the Itinerary page on the website.  Code No:  (Asia - Azerbaijan - 002, 002A, 002B and 002C.
