Maria the Potter is a hand made doll by Patricia Pena she is in stored condition from a non-smoking, pet free home. Patricia started making dolls in 1978 and sold them to the Indian markets growing up in northern Mew Mexico. Maria the Potter's head is made native clay after it is molded it is fired and stained to match the complexion of the Indian model. The dolls are sculpted with beautiful indian features. The doll's body is made of leather. The head is finished with human hair, hand blown glass eyes. There are fine Navajo points not to be overlooked. The manta (sash) is worn over the right shoulder and under the left. If someone dies, then the manta is reversed. The doll is adorned with a silver squash blossom necklace ( replica of the larger size necklace), silver earrings, black bead necklace and silver and turquois bracelet. Leather boots very soft. Attention to detail makes the dolls highly collectable she is 20 inches high. Please note a sales receipt dated 1990 in the amount of $1500. There is barely noticable smudging on the back of boots I am sure that can be easily fixed.
The doll is part of a large estate she is in stored condition. I do not make repairs all are as found. I will ship international contact me for the shipping charges.
