Whimsical Apache Cloth Boy Doll

Dating from the first half of the 20th century, this homemade Apache boy doll comes from a Southern California collection. This simplicity of the construction suggested that the doll might have been an early effort. He is made of fabric, soft stuffed, with simple stitched features and what appears to be human hair, which is tide with a length of red yarn. The monochromatic patterned shirt is hand sewn and finished with a plaid collar. The chunky beaded earring and necklace are a great touch as is the faux metal belt. 14 inches tall. Stand included.
