This is anaccumulated lot with a variety of figures made of different materials (see below). The dolls included here (left to right) include the following.|
There is an old unused Native American Indian Chief candle. It is made of wax, has a wick, and it has some colored features. There is a label on the bottom showing that it has a “Copyright by Gurley Novelty Company of Buffalo, New York”, and that it was “Made in the U.S.A.”.
The second one is a hard plastic Native American Indian Chief figure. There are no markings. It may have been a souvenir or a toy doll figure.
There is a small young Native American Indian girl doll. This doll looks similar to old Liddle Kiddle dolls. We do not see any markings and the maker is unknown. She has black hair, painted facial features, a beaded vinyl dress and headband, and a blue feather.
Next is a Native American Indian Chief bendy or bendable toy doll figure. He is made of a painted rubber material with wire inside to pose him. He has a headdress on his head, a tomahawk or hatchet in one hand and a knife in the other. It is marked on the back of his legs: “Durham Industries Inc., New York, N.Y. 10010 – Item No. 1510 – Made in Hong Kong”.
It is marked on the two sides as follows:
There is a small dress Native American Indian young woman doll. She is made of porcelain or bisque and has painted features. Her arms move, but not her legs. She is wearing a cloth outfit with gold trim, has black hair with red threat on her ponytails and a gold head band.
Next is a plastic Native American Indian baby or papoose all wrapped up in a cradle board. It is not marked other then a mold number “3”. There may have been a back on it at one time, and it was probably sold as a souvenir.
The final item in this lot is an old painted porcelain or ceramic Native American Indian young woman with a drum. She is either a salt or pepper shaker figure. The original cork plug is in the bottom. The maker is unknown but she has a “Japan” paper tag on the bottom. She is seated, has a feather in her headband, and is playing a drum. She is complete, but could use a cleaning.
All seven of these for one price! To judge the sizes the second figure measures about 5-1/2'' tall. These figures or dolls appears range from good to mint condition as pictured.
