Cleaning out our attic (putting away Christmas Decorations) we found these dolls in a storeage box. My wife says she got them 50+ years ago from an Aunt who visited Cuba.

The workman ship is remarkable. The woman has a tiny pin at her waist with the hand written word "cuba" on it. Are they something we should put in glass display boxes, or just pack away for the grandkids someday? They are really quite beautiful.

Thanks for any information.

    These are tourist novelty dolls . Very nice . I would save for grandkids as the market for them in resale would not be very high .
    Thanks for sharing

    Thanks. We like them and they have some sentimental value so resale isnt a priority. Mainly, we wondered what the "story" was about them. I appreciate your information.
