These dolls are very well-made and obviously handcrafted from all natural materials. From the deerskin to the delicate, hand-beaded buttons these dolls are well-preserved as authentic dolls.
These were given to me by an old friend who grew up in Northern Nebraska in the 1930s. She was gifted these dolls by her grandfather who said they were from the Lakota Sioux Tribe in South Dakota. It is estimated they were made in the late 1800s.
Interested in finding out if these are common, rare or need to go to a museum. If anyone knows about these types of hand-made Native American dolls I would like to find out more about them.
