I've been busy creating lots of dolls and bears lately including these two pretties. Reproduction dolls of Hannah and Eliza, antique Izannah Walker dolls. I've given these two girls a nice soft pretty look, with not much ageing at all. Their dresses are made from antique 1800s fabrics which make them very special.
Here is the link to 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.
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.
Ebony is styled on late 1800s Beecher type dolls. She is a cloth doll,
stuffed with cotton and aged slightly to have a very slight faded look. I
have needle sculpted her face and embroidered her eye brows and mouth. She
is just over 26" tall and dressed in a pretty outfit that I have
machine and hand sewn. Her dress is made from early 1900s fabric and her
underwear is made from newer but dyed and aged cotton fabric with
antique lace trim. All the clothing is removable and mostly has hand
sewn button loop fastenings. Her hair is made from persian lamb wool
fabric. Her eyes are glass , backed with painted clay for the whites.
She has a very Beecher type doll look with the painted eyelashes. You
can see how big she is in the last picture with her younger sister who
is in a separate listing. This listing is just for Ebony. The other
items are for display purposes only.
Ebony is not suitable for young children, as she is a doll for the adult collector.
She is signed and dated on the back and she has signed and dated swing tag.
A new cute trio! Sam, Martha & Jane are listed in my Etsy shop. They are all 14"tall cotton stockinet dolls, stuffed with mostly cotton filling and styled on late 1800s cloth dolls. I have embroidered & sculpted their features and also aged them slightly. The clothing is made from an assortment of antique and new but aged cotton fabrics. Have now been sold. https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLittleHamptons
