This is an unusual circa 1930s-1940s South Western American Indian corn hush doll with penciled face, and detailed cloth costume. She is dressed in a mid thigh length red tunic with beaded edging and matching leggings, a black wool skirt with red cotton border and more beadwork, beaded necklaces, leather moccasins, and a leather headband. She also has white cotton petticoat and pantaloons under the skirt. Her black braided hair is formed from a black fine mesh fabric.
Condition is good but for one worn spot through the black fabric on top back of the head.
This is the nicest example of a simple cornhusk doll that I have ever seen. This is far from a simple doll. It is well crafted and remarkably well preserved considering the fragility of the cornhusk material.
