An early wood articulated Inuit doll, wearing a seal skin coat and hood. The head moves and the feet move. The face has baleen eyes. The bottom part of the feet is missing, but it is not a distraction, because the doll has a great presence. Provenance: Descended in family of Gracella S. Woodruff. The doll was brought back from Nome c.1910 by Frederick E. Scotford, who worked for an advertising company. He left Seattle July 1910 for Nome, AK. 16" height
