an impressive dowayo doll ,38 cm body surrounded by several layers of glass beads some are Prossers trade beads .they are molded beads which are created by pressing a dry, finely powdered mixture of clay, feldspar and flint into a mold which is then heated in an oven until the material fuses and forms a glass bead. The technique is named after its inventor, Richard Prosser, who developed the process in Bohemia in the 1830s to produce buttons. Prosser pearls can be recognized by the barely visible seam that runs around the center of the outer edge of each pearl and by the uniform shape and size of the pearls in a single strand. Originally made in the Czech Republic, the prossers are now made in Morocco using old Czech equipment. the leather bands on the sides figure the arms .
