For your consideration, a very special Plateau Native American Cradleboard Doll, possibly Nez Perce. I believe this doll is from the early to mid-19th Century and features real hair, incredible beadwork using several kinds of metallic faceted beads, a buckskin-covered cradleboard and fantastic large trade bead eyes. Incredible detail, right down to berry-stained cheeks and a stitched nose! There is a small amount of missing beadwork with normal wear for such an old and important toy. Please see close-up pictures as they are an important part of this description. 20″ long, 9 1/2″ wide at it’s widest area and approx. Serious offers only please! This is a museum quality piece of Native American Art and is pictured in an older version(1980) of’North American Indian Artifacts’ by Lar Hothem. You will not be disappointed!!!
