Do a post about no western dolls and maybe a few of your own favorite dolls?
Your wish is my command!
As I said, I don’t know as much about non-Western dolls (or, to be frank, dolls made by people of color outside European society since some of these are made by Native people and that’s literally western). But here are some cool ones I’ve come across.
(Ichimatsu dolls, Japan, early 1900s)
(Inupiat carved ivory doll, Alaska, undated)
(Seminole cloth doll, Florida, early 1900s)
(Ancient Egyptian paddle doll with amazing hair, 2030-1802 BCE)
(vintage African wooden doll, possibly Tanzanian?, c. 1950-60)
As for my personal favorites, I’m a sucker for French fashion dolls of 1850-1880:
(Bisque and wooden doll by DeHors, late 1860s)
(bisque and leather doll by Jumeau, 1870s, from my personal collection)
