    Your doll is newer porcelain doll made as a collectible doll . It should have who made it on back of her neck under hair . There are so may companies and artists that produced these kinds of dolls hard to know which one unless marked by them . They made a authentic papoose to display her with. The market for these newer dolls has dropped so low as pretty as she is you may decide to just enjoy her . Newer means after 1970's to today to me . Hope this helps a bit

    Thank you very much, i checked for markings and there were'nt any, and although the papoose and cradleboard look authentic the doll is actually a head there is no body, just stuffing.....

    Yes it is nice for decorating but I doubt it was even made by a Native American . More likely a one of the hundreds of dolls companies that arose in 80-2000 as they were selling for alot of money to adult collectors . The problem is that they were produced in masses and saved as collector dolls . Early dolls were never meant to be collected but played with so very few survived and they can not be reproduced today . Only so many exist and that is all of them not assembly line to make a 1950's doll so although doll values have fallen over past yr they likely will come back up when ecomomy improves to be preserved to passed down another generation
