ITALIAN FOLK ART DOLL LA BEFANA

                                            




In the Italian folklore, Befana is an old woman who delivers gifts to children throughout Italy on Epiphany Eve, the night of January 5th.

                
She carries her basket of goodies lined with a vintage handkerchief.
