Reproduction of Eliza, an Antique Izannah Walker doll. 19 1/2"tall.


 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 with trims and bows. I have machine and hand sewn the clothing from vintage and antique fabric and cotton voile for her chemise. All the pieces, including her second skin have been aged slightly by dyeing and tea staining just a little. 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 a short wispy look at the back.

She's wearing a chemise, undies and petticoat, dress and an over skirt 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.
