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. Felt red and black dress, green satin apron. Her hair feels like mohair. The white cotton of her blouse and underwear is somewhat yellowed with age, otherwise fine.
