This is an unusual 13" tall circa early 1900s home made cloth American Indian doll. She has a simple cotton print dress that has been embellished by the addition of leather fringe around the waist and hem. Her bonnet is made from leather with the same fabric as trim and ties. The doll has leather moccasins that come mid way up the calf and are tied on around the ankle. The doll's face has simple black embroidered facial features. The hands end in simple nubs without fingers. The doll has been lightly dyed to give her some skin tone, though probably faded by now.

Condition: there is some wear on the face over nose, cheek and chin. Some of the fringe has come off and other areas are a bit fragile.

This is an uncommon American Indian doll. I have so far not been able to figure out a tribal origin. I think this was made as a play doll rather than a commercial doll.
