Finland Ceramic Doll with Hand Painted Face and Headband (Close Up)

Ceramic doll dressed in national costume of Koivisto. The center piece in the front of the chemise is called the rekko. It is similar to smocking, with colorful embroidery. The woman's skirt has a checkered top and a striped bottom. The linen apron is accented with several striped fabrics, laces and ribbons. The colorful patterns on the collar of the jacket are embroidered. Her headband is red with silver trim to simulate the tin or metal plates worn by young girls. She is wearing tan shoes. This figure stands 4 inches (10 cm) tall.
