A DOLL FROM TRISTAN da CUNHA


Today I would like to show you a very special doll from the most remote inhabited island in the 
world - TRISTAN da CUNHA.

Website Id:  (Europe - Tristan da Cunha - 001)


Website Id:  (Europe - Tristan da Cunha - 001A)


Website Id:  (Europe - Tristan da Cunha - 001B)


Tristan da Cunha, which is a group of islands in the South Atlantic Ocean, is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom.  It measures just under 7 mile long, and is 1,350 miles from the island of "Saint Helena".  The inhabitants of Tristan da Cunha live in "Edinburgh of the Seven Seas".  Their  
language is English.  Anyone wishing to live on the island must have the approval of every permanent resident on the island.  In October 2018 the population was just 250.  The island was discovered by a Portuguese Admiral - "Tristan da Cunha", in 1506, who named the island after himself.
The doll was imported, but dressed by a local person, Judy Green on Tristan da Cunha.  The doll has a vinyl body which is jointed at the hips, shoulders and neck.  Her features are painted.  She has brown wavy hair and is well dressed in a tartan-like skirt, a long sleeved blouse and a white cotton bonnet.  Her knee high socks have been hand knitted, and she wears "seal-skin" shoes.

 A signed certificate of authenticity came with the doll, and also a sheet giving information about the island.

Enjoy!
