Izannah Walker reproduction, Patience doll, by The Little Hamptons. Antique, aged appearance.

SOLD
I am happy to say that a Patience doll is finished and for sale!





 Patience" an 18" Izannah Walker doll, is made from the mold taken from the original antique Izannah Walker doll, from the 1800s, named Patience. She has a composition head and shoulders. 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's 18" tall and dressed in a pretty outfit that I have machine and hand sewn from a mixture of new, but aged and antique cotton clothing and fabric. All the clothing is removable and has hand sewn button/buttonhole or loop fastenings.

She has a slightly aged look. I have given her a short at the back hair style, with side ringlets. In keeping with the antique look, her ringlets are also aged.

She has a second skin, chemise, undies, petticoat,dress and apron.
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.

The smaller doll is not included, but is available in a separate listing.

She is for sale in my online Etsy shop. Here is the link.
