VINTAGE DOLLS - SOUTH AFRICA, MEXICO, BRAZIL and SCOTLAND

Today I am listing four little vintage dolls.  I am very fond of this particular type of doll.  I realise that they are not to everyone's liking, but personally,  I think they have a certain charm of their own.  I also think that during the dates these dolls were made,(1960's), plastic was a material which was used frequently to make dolls (and other things).
These days, when everyone is trying to dispose of plastic, I believe that it will possibly be difficult to find dolls such as these in years to come, so we must preserve them!  It is quite possible that eventually they could even become quite collectable because plastic may no longer be in existence.  In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy these dolls.

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.)

I am also adding two photos which I took on a recent ten mile coastal walk, from Maen-y-Groes to Aberaeron, West Wales.  The scenery was absolutely stunning!

A RUSSIAN (MORDVA) DOLL, and some FOREIGN HATS

Today I have listed a very special doll!  She is a RUSSIAN doll from the (MORDVA) region.  She dates back to the 1920's/1930's.

I have also added some new hats onto the "MY FOREIGN HATS AND HEAD-WEAR" page.  (Top, right hand side of the Home Page. There is a child's cockle bonnet from Wales (U.K.), a colourful hat from Guatemala and an Asian hat, but I am not certain which country the Asian hat is from.  Any help would be very much appreciated.  Thank you in advance!
