These dolls are from a few different collectors and doll makers. First these two amazing porcelain dolls, followed by a description of how they came to be. They are a compilation of several artisans working in harmony to create these First Nations pieces. They stand approximately 3 feet tall. Not exactly sure, they are in raised up cases. Gorgeous.
Another collection of First Nations dolls.
These are Inuit dolls. I heard the curator explaining about a Tea Doll. When the Inuit would move to other areas, everyone had to carry something, so they would fill dolls with the tea reserves for the children to carry. Everyone played a part. Click here to read a little more about these fascinating little dolls. The two dolls on the right side of the first picture are listed as tea dolls.
And this is another case of Inuit dolls. That’s it for today. I had a chance to get better pictures of the nesting doll display case today, so I have replaced the pictures of those in my last post. If you want to see the case properly photographed, click here and scroll down the page. See you in a few days with more pictures.
