This Cloth Souvenir Folk Art Doll of Hindi Film Sardar Malik was found in an old 60s blue suitcase filled with many other beautiful dolls of culture in Edith's "Doll Room". The "Doll Room" used to be a bedroom but was converted to house all of Edith's dolls and it was jam-packed, wall to wall, floor to ceiling. A bit overwhelming at first I must say. But it has been a real joy going through all of them one by one. This particular doll wears traditional Indian clothing which is spiffed up with a pearl necklace. He is dressed in a cream color with gold embellishment, light green and gold sash, pink and gold turbin, and red leather shoes. His face is hand daintily painted and he is looking out with perfect lips and mustache. There is a tag attached that says "hand-made India" on one side and "Sardar" on the other. He is in beautiful condition considering his age and I would consider him perfectly imperfect as his clothing has several age stains. However, she is absolutely gorgeous and would be a great addition to any culturally designed collection.
