most were done for turists and presented the population living in Israel at the time.
most of them were done by artists. Edith Samuel a German born artist and one of my favorites , reminds me of the German Kaete Kruse dolls.
Ruth Tauber loved the Yemenite charachters and young Israeli kibutzniks
All dolls were about 15-20 cm max.
These are 10 cm .
Aren't they gorgeus?
I also saw this very interesting annual glass show hels at the museum, there instead of minis I've seen some overblown maxis- loved those too:
