Izannah Walker reproduction of the antique doll "Hannah" by The Little Hamptons


I've just finished my latest 19" 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 just over 19" 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 hand sewn button/buttonhole or loop fastenings.

  She has a very authentic slightly 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.

 She has a  chemise, undies and petticoat, hat and capelet all made mostly from antique garments and  fabrics.  Her dress is actually 2 pieces, being a skirt and a top. The outfit is a copy of an antique dress from the 1800s. The fabric used is 1800s vintage and is just beautiful. I have made her poke bonnet in a method often used, with two layers of fabric having some batting in between for a nice padded look.
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.
