NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN adorable Seminole woman doll. Her body is woven and hand sewn from Palmetto fiber, her traditional six color patchwork clothing is sewn on a treadle sewing machine. Her sweet face has a formed nose, red thread mouth, thread eyes and she looks at you with a slight angle to her head. Very endearing! She wears the traditional black bonnet of this time period and has multi strands of yellow lined cut crystal beads wrapped around her neck.
CONDITION: Good, a couple of places where her fabric is pieced together and has a tiny bit of fraying, light fading and she has a stain on her blouse on the back side. Her body is strong and she stands on her own.
SIZE: Height: 9 1/2", Width: 2 1/2" bottom diameter
CIRCA: Pre 1950's, the general rule is if a seminole doll has colored rick rack on the clothing it has been made after 1950. There is a flaw to this thinking though, there are rick rack type trims from the early 1800's. However, the aniline dyes used in the brighter colors of rick rack are what is being referred to. My feeling on age for her is between the 1920's and 30's.
