This is an early original Sioux Native American Indian beaded child’s doll dating to the 19th Century. The doll shows a trade clothe filled doll that is covered in Indian tanned hide parfleche clothing showing a war shirt / dress, leggings, and moccasins. The piece shows original human hair along the head with period correct glass trade seed beads in sky padre blue, black, medium green, chalk white, red white and corn yellow. The figure shows a mother and child with the child affixed to the back in a papoose. The child has trade yarn hair. The piece is both sinew and trade thread sewn and shows slight dry cracking and bead loss as shown. This is truly an early piece. Provenance: From the renowned Sundog Fine Art Bozeman, Montana collection and collected by Bruce VanLandingham. Bruce VanLandingham was a pillar in the American Indian collecting community and a respected expert. Along with being an avid collector Bruce also was the sole owner of Sundog Fine Art Gallery in Bozeman which was both part museum and gallery. The doll measures 4" x 7.5".
