nevertheless and jokes aside, found this nice lookin' toy (30cm) of a freedom fighter / insurgent from Crete with his bichaq during the Ottoman domination

Look well made ... any idea of its age ? is it just a child's toy or part of some sort of display ?

My guess would be between the 50-70ies and no child’s toy, rather a display item. Looking at the clothing (the sewing) it is too well made for playing around and more a visuality of their Cretan past. Also The attention to detail one wouldn’t find in later display and toys.

I would think a tourist piece for adults. Many dolls now have good detail to them, this one appears hand made and shows simple materials in its construction..
