The Little Hamptons, Reproduction of Hannah, an antique Izannah Walker doll.

Another girl completed. She is a 19 1/2" reproduction of the antique Izannah Walker doll, Hannah. This doll has a very soft look about her. I have given her a very pale cheek and lip colouring. She has ringlets at both the back and the sides.

 I have painted her lace up boots directly onto her legs and feet, but the rest of her clothing is fully removable.

Her clothing is made from mostly cotton antique fabrics and lace, her petticoat being made from an antique cotton garment, with original pintucks and lace.  Her dress is a beautiful soft shade of pink  antique fabric. Her chemise, petticoat and dress have button fastenings and her apron is tied at the back in a bow.

New Izannah Walker reproduction Doll "Eliza" by the Little Hamptons

This is my second doll for the year, made from the "Eliza" mold taken from the original antique Izannah Walker doll.
These reproductions show the detail of the original antiques, including the scuffs, the general wear and tear of the originals. 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. 
She is 19 1/2"tall and wearing a very pretty outfit that I made from vintage and antique cotton fabric and clothing. She has a  dress, chemise, bloomers and petticoat which are all lace trimmed and have button fastenings. The chemise has a drawstring neck, so you can adjust the gathers for a low or higher neckline.
I have also given her a purchased poke bonnet and trimmed with some fabric bows and narrow ribbon trim.  I have added  lots of pictures for you to view.
If you have any questions please email me. using the link on the right hand side of this page.
She is available for immediate purchase on Etsy. Here is the link to my online Etsy shop :

The Little Hamptons first Repro. Izannah Walker doll for 2015.

Happy New Year to everybody. I've just finished my latest 18" Izannah Walker doll, making her from the mold taken from the original antique Izannah Walker doll named Patience.
She is 18" tall and dressed in a pretty outfit that I have machine and hand sewn from vintage and antique clothing and fabric. All the clothing is removable and has handsewn button/buttonhole or loop fastenings.
The original Izannah doll had stuffing peeking through on her head and forehead, so I have replicated this by using some antique cotton quilt batting. She has a very authentic aged look. I have painted the ringlets both at the back and the sides for a typical Izannah look. She has nice brown eyes and a soft, pale pink lip and cheek colour.
The Patience lookalike has the most aged appearance of all the 3 dolls that I reproduce. I will be adding one of my Eliza dolls in a few days time.
She is has been sold but i have other dolls , kits and patterns in my Etsy shop:

If you have any questions about this doll or interested in purchasing her, please feel free to contact me via email. The email link is on the right hand side of this page.
