Izannah Walker reproduction doll of Patience by The Little Hamptons

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 vintage 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 very Izannah Walker doll hairstyle with ringlets sides and back.

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

If you have any questions or would like to buy her please use the email link on the right hand side of this page. Or you can purchase her from my Etsy Shop.

The Little Hamptons, Ethel. Queen Anne Wooden antique Style doll. Made from paperclay and cloth..

SOLD:



Ethel is in the style of an early carved wooden one from early 1800s. She is made with Creative Paperclay and cloth. Her shoulder head, lower arms and legs are paper clay and her body and upper limbs are cloth stuffed with cotton. I have given her an aged appearance with special painting techniques. Her features are simple, in keeping with an old primitive style. I have made her a pretty dress from vintage cotton fabric that I have aged more with some dying. The lace trim is antique and has some wear in keeping with an antique doll. She has some natural hair attached to the top of her head. This is just at the front edge and does not cover her entire head as her hat is not removable. I made her straw bonnet and attached some antique lace for a pretty feminine look. Her shoes are painted directly onto her dainty little feet.
I have given her some small black glass eyes.
She is quite reminiscent of a Queen Anne doll and other similar dolls of that era.

Ethel is signed and dated on the back and comes with signed swing tag.

Please note that the other little doll and chair are not included in this listing.

You can contact me by using the email link on the right hand side of this page if you have any questions or would like to purchase her directly from me or you can purchase her straight away using Paypal from my Etsy shop. here is the link.

She's dressed in a pretty outfit that I have machine and hand sewn from vintage cotton fabric. The clothing is removable and has hand sewn button/buttonhole or loop fastenings.I have given her a slightly aged look to look like an antique doll.

She has a second skin, petticoat and a dress.
I have painted her shoes directly onto her feet and added some lace trim.
