Souix Elderly Art Council
Baby Doll Papoose in a Cradle Board
My folks bought this doll on the reservation near Rapid City SD in the 1970s. My mother's description on an accompanying card says:
12 inch Souix Indian Papoose on Cradle Board. Brown vinyl baby with real black hair in two pony tails trimmed with beads and feathers. Cradle board is corrugated cardboard covered with padded yellow fabric, made with a pocket for baby. Top of packaging- "Authentic Crafted Souix Heritage Baby Doll, Order from Souis Elderly Art Council, 919 Main, Suite H205, Rapid City South Dakota 57701.
Doll is 12" tall. Board is 8" x 14". There is a hand finished matching yellow strap at the top corners of the board, so a child could put it around her forehead to carry baby in the back, or around her neck to carry in the front. She's got a bead-on-elastic bracelet that's become stretched out, and wears white diapers 'neath her calico dress.
I have just this one like this to sell, so act quickly if you wish it for your collection. It will cost much more to ship Medium Flat Rate International PRIORTY Box to Canada ($45 incl. postage and customs) and Europe ($60.)
