NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN DOLL
ARTIST - HOWARD OAKLAND


Handsome detailed doll portrays a Native American Indian dressed in a fringed buckskin shirt with a print shirt underneath and brown cloth pants. Moccasin shoes are suede leather. Doll's molded head has detailed features. Black hair is applied.

Unmarked except for a paper handwritten tag attached to doll's leg; "Modern" Grey Hab(t) by Howard Oakland 6/3/52 OD".

Doll comes from the estate auction of a Kansas City Collector.

From the internet: "IF someone had told Howard Oakland of Seattle, Washington, that he would come to earn a living sculpturing Indians, he would have answered: "You're crazy!" Yet, in looking back, he sees that he was even then working up to it.

He was forty-five years in the clothing business, in Great Falls, Montana, and Aberdeen and Hoquiam, Washington, during which time he used to do the window displays. With a nice feeling for line and form, he then as now gave much thought to making the most of his materials.

Oakland's liking for art work—he refuses to call it a talent—was his incentive to do something different. Always his hobbies ran along art lines; some of his oil paintings compare favorably with those hung in art museums. Out of this feeling about for a medium to express himself has grown his hobby-turned-into-a-business.

Doll collectors and those interested in Indian lore are buying more and more of his eight- and nine-inch figurines, comparing notes on these possessions. But, although "Oakland Originals" are being, recognized, few have heard of the maker.

"Some have the idea," Oakland says, a rare smile lighting up his serious, sensitive face, "that I'm an Indian myself. I just happen to like Indians and admire some of the great chiefs who had a part in our history."

Sixty year old doll is clean, no smoky or odd odors. No stains, tears or fading. Doll has a tiny rub to his lower lip. 

Doll measures 8 3/4" tall.
