Anyone with Sicilian connections or who have been to Sicily may recognise this doll in folk costume (right) and the decorated cart, carrello or carrozza…
Came across the display as part of an Italian migrant exhibition at the Commissariat Store Museum in Brisbane.
Along with some bomboniere… (below) familiar to Italian weddings, christenings and communions.

Interesting. Is this a permanent display or a seasonal one?
It has been a long-term display but I’m not sure if it is still there. Perhaps best to ring and check first if you were thinking of taking a look… http://www.queenslandhistory.org/
