Izannah Walker doll. Reproduction antique style art doll by The Little Hamptons.

Hannah a reproduction Izannah Walker doll is now listed in my Etsy shop 
https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLittleHamptons

Hannah is a 19" reproduction of a mid 1800s Izannah Walker doll. She has a composition head and shoulders that I made using the mold taken from the original antique Izannah Walker doll named Hannah . I carefully paint and give these dolls a nice antique look. The bodies are made from cotton fabric and stuffed as the originals were, with cotton stuffing. I have also painted and aged the arms and legs, to look just like their antique sisters.
These reproductions show the detail of the original antiques.

She is dressed in a pretty outfit that I have machine and hand sewn from vintage and antique mid 1800s fabric and newer cotton voile for her underwear. All the clothing is removable and has hand sewn button/buttonhole or loop fastenings.

This doll has a very authentic aged look. I have painted the ringlets at the sides and at the back.

She's wearing a chemise, undies and petticoat, hat and dress.
I have painted her boots directly onto her feet.


She is signed and dated on the back of her shoulder plate and she has signed and dated swing tags.
