This is a unique Vintage Herero Doll from the Tribal People of Nambia. This National Doll was produced to represent a Herero women from Namibia. Dolls are among the most universal toys found throughout the world and through history. Ornamental dolls can also be used to represent aspects of cultural traditions, such as dress. Herero women adopted the Victorian fashions of the 19th Century Germans who colonized their lands. During the 17th and 18th centuries the Herero migrated to Namibia. Then in the 19th Century German colonists began to arrive and settle the land, creating the colony, German South-West Africa. These dolls were purchased as souvenirs of particular countries and like many mass produced souvenirs they are often not accurate representations of a particular country or region, and may actually better reflect neighboring counties or regions. This occurs because costumes are often stylized and simplified resulting dolls wearing generic costume elements which are common to many countries/regions. Often the fabrics and decorations used are selected to make the dolls cheap and easy to manufacture and aesthetically pleasing. This can result in the fabrics, colors and decorations of the doll's clothing having little or no reflection of the costume associated with a particular country or region they are meant to be representative of. This unique vintage Herero is one of a kind and would be a wonderful addition to your home or collection.
