Native American Alaskan Inupiaq Inuit Yupik Indian Eskimo Horn Carved Fur Doll For Sale

Native American Alaskan Inupiaq Inuit Yupik Indian Eskimo Horn Carved Fur Doll

~ This is a Vintage Yup'ik Eskimo ~Carved Reindeer Horn Signed Doll with Handmade Fur Clothing. The Native Yup'ik Eskimo woman who made this lives in an Inupiaq Eskimo community of Shismaref, Alaska ~ This is an island in the far Northwest corner of Alaska that is disappearing due to rising sea water. Shismaref is known as 'Shish' for short. These dolls originated in the mid-1920's and are unique to Shishmaref. The minature clothing for the 'horn dolls' as they are called in the village, are sometimes used as practice sewing by the young girls, who help with various stages of production.
The facial features are carved and inked and the body is signed. The parka lifts over the head of the doll. The doll is in very good Vintage condition. We purchased it from Nora Kuzuguk in Shishmaref in 1979 while on a surveying mission there. The clothing is typically made from Reindeer fawn, Seal, artic squirrel, felt and calf skin, and I believe this one has most of those elements. There is no damage that I can see, no odor and has been kept in a smoke freeenvironment. The dollmeasures 6 1/4" long X 2 1/4" wide. This is a very special doll and a Wonderful Collectible.
We pack very carefully and will insure with USPS.
