My mother was in Arabia in 1969 and I don't know if she acquired this then or obtained it from her sister that lived there for many years. Anyway, it is a very unique piece. It stands 5 " tall, has some chips in it from aging and is sign on the bottom Beni Sakhr And some Arabic writing I can not interpret for you. It comes with its cloth bag. Thanks for looking and please check out Mom's other great dolls seeking new homes this week.
