The Little Hamptons a reproduction of Eliza, an antique Izannah Walker doll. by Lynda Hampton

SOLD




This sweet old fashioned doll is made from the "Eliza" mold taken from an antique Izannah Walker doll of the mid 1800s. The Izannah Walker dolls are very rare and perhaps the next best thing is one of my reproductions.
These composition head reproductions show the detail of the original antiques. I carefully paint and give these dolls a nice old look, taking a lot of care to capture the look of an antique Izzy. The bodies are made from cotton fabric and stuffed as the originals were, with cotton stuffing. The arms and legs are painted with an aged look.
She is 19" tall and wearing a very pretty outfit that I made from antique cotton fabric and clothing. She has a dress, chemise, bloomers and petticoat which all have button fastenings.
I have also made her a nice apron from antique clothing with beautiful hand worked lace edging.
I painted her lace up boots directly onto her feet.

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

 You can contact me using the email link on the right hand side of this page if you have any questions. She is also listed in my online etsy shop.  She has now found a home.

THE LITTLE HAMPTONS, BLACK REPRODUCTION OF "PATIENCE", AN ANTIQUE IZANNAH WALKER DOLL

SOLD
 My latest reproduction of Patience now has clothes!!! and is ready for a new home.



I decided to make a brown skinned "Patience". I haven't made a black Izannah Walker doll before, but i think she looks just as sweet as her white sisters. She is 18" Izannah Walker doll, made from the mold taken from the original antique Izannah Walker doll named Patience. Izannah Walker made a few black dolls which are even more scarce than the others.

She is 18" tall and dressed in a pretty outfit that I have machine and hand sewn from antique clothing and fabric. All the clothing is removable and has hand sewn button/buttonhole or loop fastenings.

She has a very authentic aged look.

These reproductions show the detail of the original antiques, including the scuffs, the general wear and tear of the originals and even the finest detail such as the texture of the stockinette fabric.
The Patience lookalike has the most aged appearance of all the 3 dolls that I reproduce.
She has quite an aged appearance picking up all the wear and tear of the original doll.
She has a nice red cotton second skin, chemise, undies and petticoat and apron, all made from antique garments and fabrics .
I have painted her lace up 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.
