Hampton Bears Antique Style artist teddy Bears on Bearpile. New 13" aged teddies.



I have just finished making three little teddy bears, with their mummy mended look, including obvious stitching and wool and button stitched eyes. Poor little bears may be minus an eye and had a few worn out paw pads, but they are  full of character with their antique cotton covered paw pads and worn and shaded mohair . They are all for sale in my Bearpile shop. Here is the link.

Izannah Walker Reproduction Doll of the antique Eliza, by the Little Hamptons. 19 1/2"tall.

FOR SALE:





Eliza has been quite popular this month, so I've created another sweet girl.  I made the dress from a very old mid 1800s fabric. I love these old fabrics. They have a special feel about them. If you'd like more information or would like to purchase her, you may contact me via the email link on the right hand side of this page, or buy her from my etsy shop. Here is the link.

Eliza is a 19 1/2" reproduction of an 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 Eliza. 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 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, dress and a capelet in a woolen fabric with cotton lining that matches her 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.

Lots of pictures below, showing this Eliza wearing her pretty brown dress and capelet.
