Black Bottle Pop Dolls

I do not know if these are made by school children of these are intended as a cheap souvenir items intended for the tourist market. The bottle pop dolls sometimes called bottle doll craft or bottle art dolls were probably made in the 1970’s or early 1980’s. An interesting way to upscale old bottles and giving them another life as display item.

According to a local bottle art doll collector, This can trace as far back as the early 20th century.

These bottle dolls probably came from Japan, South Korea or Southern United States. Bottle doll craft is quite popular in India, Pakistan and Latin American countries as an inexpensive art item or even toy item for children.
