A mid 20th century fabric costume doll dressed in Scottish costume (also known as souvenir, world costume, tourist and foreign travel dolls). The fabric is silky and knitted (like stockinette). It has painted facial features but the eyes are also embroidered as small straight lines in dark blue thread. The hair is made from brown wool, sewn in all over the head. The doll is wearing a skirt made from red, blue, green, white, blue and yellow woollen tartan, with a 'sporran' made from a small piece of brown fur. It also has a cream satin blouse which has cream lace at the neck and cuffs and a red ribbon bow at the front of the neck. On its head is a cap made from black velvet with a black ribbon bow at the back of the neck.
One doll from a collection of costume dolls donated by Mr R.T. Macfarlane in 1976.
