A Skookum doll was a themed doll sold as a souvenir in the early 20th century. The origin of the dolls is generally credited to a Montana woman named Mary McAboy who evolved the style from applehead dolls that she learned to craft as a child. This particular doll is a vintage version dating back to the 1920s, as evidenced by her suede moccasins. [“One method of determining the production date of the dolls is by studying the footwear. For example, the earliest dolls from around 1913 had moccasins made of leather. By 1918, the mocassins were simulated with suede applied to wood, and painted designs. By 1924, they were molded of composition material, and by the 1950s, the dolls had plastic feet.[6] Production of the dolls ended in the early 1960s.” - WikiPedia]
