DOLLS FROM JAPAN,UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, and INDONESIA (Java)

Today I am listing dolls from JAPAN,  UNITED ARAB EMIRATES and INDONESIA (Java).

I would also like to show you two hats which I purchased in Tibet last September.  They are one male and one female, and I assume the only difference between them is the background colour.  The male hat is the black one, and the female hat is more colourful.

As always, you can see more photos, and more information about the dolls on my website.  Just go to my website (www.worldcostumedolls.com) and click onto the Itinerary tab across the top of the HOME Page.  Put the Code number into the search box, and they will come up.
(If you just put in the name of the country, it will bring up all the dolls in that country).

A DOLL FROM MEXICO, and some PEGGY NISBET DOLLS

The last couple of months have been extremely busy for me, but hopefully I will soon be able to settle back down to listing more dolls to show you.

I have recently returned from Tibet and China, and I was able to find just a few beautiful hand made dolls in Tibet, so as soon as I have catalogued them I will be able to show them to you.  I had a family wedding a few days before I went, and just after I came back home, I had another family wedding.
In the meantime, here are just a few Peggy Nisbet dolls, and a doll from Mexico.


As always, you can see more photos, and more information about the dolls on my website.  Just go to my website (www.worldcostumedolls.com) and click onto the Itinerary tab across the top of the HOME Page.  Put the Code number into the search box, and they will come up.
