This lovely cloth doll from around 1930 was made to represent the costume of the Ukraine. She is one of a series of exquisite dolls made for export from Russian to represent the lovely detailed costumes of the various ethnic regions. She is mask faced, hand-painted features, stuffed cloth. Her costume includes a velvet vest, cotton shirt with drawn on embroidery and plaid skirt. She wears tall red cloth boots. She has her original necklace and is crowned by a paper flower wreath. She is shown in the last picture with the "Village Boy", who is sold separately in our shop. She would have had aa cloth tag as all of these Russian dolls did but hers is gone. Fortunately I have seen a number of tagged variations of the Ukranian Women and am dating her based upon that.
