NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN SMALL, TINY, MINIATURE Seneca Cornhusk doll. He or she is opened arms with very faint pencil drawn eyes, nose and mouth on his cornhusk face. His hair is brown/black linen (?) braided over his shoulders and tied off with lightly faded burgundy linen fabric. The braid tie fabric matches his waist belt and brow band with small groups of beads. His little cornhusk arms are gathered and tied at the wrists with heavy cotton. His pose always reminds me of the saying "I love you this much"! His clothing is native woodland brown leather (the same that has been used for decades for Seneca moccasins). His clothing has hand cut short fringe on the shirt and leggings. His shirt has a row of mixed colored beads around the hip area and then is edge beaded around the bottom with matching mixed colored beads. There are three loops of matching mixed colored beads across his chest. His moccasins are matching leather and are just gathered and folded back. Cotton thread has been used and the sewing is both hand and machine.
CONDITION: GREAT!!! No rips, missing beads or problems on his clothing or hair. The facial cornhusk has dried with age and there is a hole on the left side of his mouth. He shows age and light handling. No odors!
CIRCA: 1930'S to 1950's
SIZE: 5" Tall by 4" Wide (hand to hand)
