Unusual Doll Vintage Cloth Indian Girl All Original
Here I have a very Different and Unique Cloth Indian Girl. I don't know whether she is a hand-made one of a kind or a commercial doll. Although, I am leaning towards commercial. She stands 15in. tall. She has a one piece hard stuffed cloth body. Her face is embroidered and still vibrant and colorful, although the muslim due to its age has slightly darkened but does not distract from the dolls looks. The hair is black yarn with a braid on each side. Her patterned dress although evenly faded still maintains its beautiful colors of red, blue, aqua and yellow, and has no stains, rips, holes or tears. Her attached to the dress underpants are original color and match the moccasins. The matching cloth moccasins are sewn on to her long brown ribbed socks which extends up to her thighs. Although the moccasins are cloth, the bottoms have a flat sole and if balanced right, she can stand alone. Her condition is very good to excellent for her age, c.1930s-40s. She does have an old damage to one lower arm, opening of cloth which is nowhere near as large as it shows in photo (see photo). It's not going anywhere and does not distract. She has no odors and comes from a smoke free home. These photos do her no justice, as she is much nicer looking in person. This cloth Indian Girl is really different and unusual and if you collect this kind of doll or cloth in general, then she is surely one to consider, as I have never seen another one like her before in my 35 years of enjoying the doll world. More than likely a blue ribbon winner in a cloth category of a doll convention.
