Today I am listing dolls from PORTUGAL (Madeira), CHINA, FRANCE, WALES and MEXICO.
The Portuguese doll (Madeira) is a beautiful vintage doll with a plastic body. Many people do not like plastic dolls, but I think the old vintage ones certainly have a charm of their own and can be of very good quality. This one is a 1960's doll and is a good quality doll, and very well dressed. Her clothes are beautifully embroidered and her mule-type shoes are delightful, as they are embroidered, and they have real leather soles and heels.
As always, you can see more pictures, and more information about the dolls, on my website. Thank you.
I have also added a couple of Postcards of people in costume.
