A 1960s (possibly) plastic national costume doll, possibly a Belgian 'Lace woman' (also known as souvenir, world costume, tourist and foreign travel dolls). She has moulded facial details with open and shut blue eyes. She has light brown artificial hair and wears a white lace headdress (which has two side pieces which curl at the end) on which is a full upright lace cap. Her body is made from plastic and her arms are jointed at the shoulders and her legs are jointed at the hips. She wears a black dress which is decorated with white lace on the bodice and cuffs. She wears a white lace apron and her skirt is trimmed at the hem with 2 bands of white lace sewn either side of a red band of white, green and blue floral embroidery.
One doll from a collection of costume dolls donated by Mr R.T. Macfarlane in 1976.
