This doll in a cradleboard was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1980. The doll's face was drawn with colored pencils and has black yarn hair. It is wrapped in a dark blue wool blanket remnant, with a trade blanket type pattern. The cradleboard and U-shaped framing above the doll's head are also decorated in the dark blue wool with green, red, pink and blue small round "seed" beads. Above the doll's head hangs two brass bells and a small beaded figure that may be an owl.
