Description

A small doll made from injection moulded polystyrene with movable head and arms but fixed legs. This doll is intended for display rather than play. The leather-like costume is embellished with a row of small beads above the hem on the fronT only and the words 'BANFF CANADA' suggesting that this doll was made for the tourist market. The doll is wearing a bead embellished headband and beaded moccasin shoes. Thought to date from the 1960s.
