My reference book (The Ultimate Doll Book - by Caroline Goodfellow) describes this as a 1960's souvenir. There were dolls representing the four republics. This one most closely resembles the one pictured for Ukraine. She is of molded pressed paper which has been nicely painted. Her head piece is a bit crushed and there is some wear to the paint on her face and skirt. Sticker on the bottom is pictured. Neat & unusual item. US Shipping Only.
