NATIVE AMERICAN NAVAJO handmade female doll with silver tone metal rocker engraved belt and blouse panel. The metal is tarnished so it could be German silver or early tin, it did not test for silver or sterling. She has a muslin body, heavier linen undergarments made with a center seam so she can ride her horse or donkey if she needs to. Her blue and cream striped cotton skirt is topped with a rust colored velvet blouse. She has rusty red fabric Navajo boots with small, traditional silver Navajo made beads. Her hair is made of fine black yarn and is folded into the traditional hairstyle and wrapped with cotton thread. Her sweet face is a heavy tan twill fabric, she has a slightly shaped nose and pencil drawn eyes and mouth. She has a matching glass seed bead and silver bead necklace and earrings.
CONDITION: Excellent! Just a very few light stains on her skirt, but everything else is great! No odors of any type.
CIRCA: 1920's to 1950 (Sewing looks by hand and treadle machine).
SIZE: HEIGHT: 10", WIDTH: 3 1/2"
Sadly I have no collection information on her. She has been with us for many years. I wish I knew the maker, I have seen similar dolls with the same skirt fabric in museum collections!
