Anthropological Collection

Doll with a typical Spanish costume, representing a flamenco dancer, dressed in a white black polka dot suit and a large black mantilla, wearing white shoes, white handkerchief, a red flower and carrying a fan in her left hand. Mounted on gray square pedestal.

Curious fact:

The flamenco dress is born from a similar dress that was used by gypsy women and that, at the end of the 19th century, It was reinterpreted by the wealthy classes with colorful fabrics and accessories. The suit was consecrated as official dress for the April Fair in Seville at the end of the 1920 decade.
