JP-009  Corn Husk Doll   An early form of doll crafted by North American Indian tribes across the continent shown and given to the colonists during the earliest days of European contact.    These Corn Husk Dolls represent colonial girls at different tasks in their daily lives.    None of the dolls have faces which was a common practice among the Native Americans crafters.
Shown here is the Betsy Ross Corn Husk Doll.   For a complete listing of available "stock" dolls, please see our "Jude's Products" page here.   $15.00

TA-013  Cabin Doll    This is another common doll made by the colonial girls and women. It was typically crafted from scraps of material too small for other practical uses in the early American home. Material was a precious commodity in the home, being used for many purposes, and so dolls had to be made small. Colonial girls, however, were happy to have a doll, no matter how big or small.   $3.00
