THIS ITEM WILL BE POSTED FROM THE U. Get Vendio Gallery - Now FREE! STUNNING PR ANTIQUE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN NORTHWEST COAST WOODEN DOLL FIGURES. I will be listing additional items on Friday 3rd so please come back for a look later. This is an incredible pair of antique Northwest Coast, likely Tlingit or Haida, dolls.
The bodies and faces are carved from wood, probably cedar and they have been clothed in fur and hide. The faces have been delicately painted in red and black pigments in the traditional Northwest Coast manner and each doll has its' own accessory with the male figure carrying a superb miniature copper'tool' - handmade and looking Tlingit in style and the female figure has a metal (possibly silver but I'm not certain) bracelet engraved with a simple design. I have never seen anything quite like these before but I have shown them to a colleague in the U.Who really is an expert in the field of Native American art and whilst I thought they dated to around 1900 he said they could even have been made 10-20 years before then. They are charming and rare and would enhance most collections of Native American art or indeed antique dolls! There is some light wear here and there as you would expect for a fragile pair of antique dolls such as these and one or two of the arms are a littls loose so you need to be careful with them but there is nothing in the way of serious damage.
The male doll is slightly larger and stands just over 29cms tall (stand not included) and the female a fraction over 27cms tall. More than just a pretty picture.
