CROATIA, BOSNIA AND MONTENEGRO DOLLS

I have recently returned from a trip to Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro. 
As usual, I was looking for new dolls!

The dolls in CROATIA were mostly made of porcelain with thick unrealistic hands, and rather "starey" eyes, so I chose the hard plastic ones instead.  The chimney sweep is made of a more dainty porcelain than the regional dolls.
In BOSNIA, as I was limited for time, I was only able to find dolls made of vinyl, but they give an idea of the costumes.
In MONTENEGRO I found the delightful little "elderly people" dolls which are hand made.  The other pair of dolls is vinyl.

For more pictures and further information, please see the website.  Carole.
