A friend of my is engaged in a kind of survey on dolls and figurines around
the world. Way out of my area of knowledge, but I helped her with Kachinas
and other several others. She asked me to see if anyone on the list has
information about the following:

Moroccan leather dolls

Carved wooden troll dolls from Norway

Fabric Stump Dolls from Granada

Quechua knit dolls from Peru

Dolls from Israel dipicting different professions, such as those made by
Frank Meisler

Information requested:

1. Are they still being made or when were they made?

2. Original purpose or function, such as toys or gifts to children,
religious, tourist trade. etc.

3. Any other info as to origin.

Thank you. Martin Cohen
