This hand sewn doll was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1963. Her body is made of cotton stuffed muslin, her facial features were embroidered with black cotton thread, and her hair is made of loosely woven black material. Her clothing is decorated with both seed beads (smaller) and pony beads (larger) of assorted colors. The doll's high topped cowhide boots still have the cow hair on the soles. The boots also have unusual upturned toes.
