This Dutch doll seems to be a Wildebras doll. Wildebras is a dutch doll brand made by the firm Het Poppenrijk in Steenwijk from 1946 until 1973. She is a plastic doll with moulded hair and static eyes, no visible marks. Movable limbs. She is wearing the traditional sunday costume of the Drenthe (also spelled as Drente) province in the Netherlands. Under the bonnet is a golden casque or 'oorijzer' (simulated by gold paper), a form that has evolved from a simple clasp with 2 knobs pressed against the cheeks to a helmet type casque, to show the wealth of the owner. A bag completes the velvet outfit. Her jacket and skirt are lined with satin. Skirt is padded with foam to give it volume.
