Vintage Ndebele Doll

She is approx 15" tall.
I believe she is a Maiden Doll.
A Maiden Doll wears an apron that signifies her passage out of adolescence into adulthood.
She is now of marriageable age.
A hoop around her waist would indicate that she is engaged to be married.

Her apron is made of animal hide.
She is wearing a multi-colored beaded hoop.
She has metal wire around her neck and leg and copper wiring on her arms.

Her right leg is missing...
