This is a vintage Native American 1970s hand made signed Navajo Kachina doll in case.
The case and doll are large with the case measuring 19 and 1/2 inches high by 16 inches across and 11 inches deep.
The bottom of the doll is signed Early Badger and has the signature of the artist but I can not make it out.
I purchased the doll from an estate sale. The former owner worked with Navajo young adults throughout the 1970s and early 1980s.
This doll was made for her as a gift in the early 1970s. Her husband made the case which is comprised of finished pine wood and plexi glass.
The doll is in very good condition and features real shells and fur. It is completely hand crafted in the Navajo tradition and signed.
This is a one of a kind piece authentic for the collector. It has been well preserved inside the case and makes a wonderful presentation.
