The costume from Gutach in the Schwarzwald (Black Forest) region is by far the most well known national costume of Germany. The straw hat with woolen pompoms is very typical. Unmarried girls wear red pompoms on their hats, married women have black pompoms. This doll obviously represents an unmarried girl. The doll comes mint in box with sticker 'Schwarzwald, Gutachtal' and some address labels of the former owner. She is made by Stoll's Trachtenpuppen but misses her tag.
