19 1/2" Izannah Walker doll with ringlets............................SOLD

I will be adding more photos as soon as I can but I just wanted to share some photos of my latest 19 1/2" Izannah Walker doll that is finished and SOLD.
She is a bare foot Izannah with handmade socks and shoes.  She also has amazing antique undergarments that consist of bloomers, petticoat and a darling chemise, all made from hand stitched very early pieces from the England.
Her dress is amazing and again made from early calico from about 1850-1860.  It is faded brown and faded reddish pink.  I also made her a calico bonnet that co-ordinates with her dress.  I do not care for bonnets on Izannah dolls but they are wonderful to display with them.
Enjoy these photos for now and as soon as the sun goes down I will take some more.  If you have any questions or would like more photos before I can get them on here just email me:
Thanks for dropping by!


This Izannah has really wonderful ringlets!!
7 of them, 5 across the back and one on each side of her head in front of her ears.

Ignore the shine on her head, that is my flash.  She has a wonderful warm patina.

Here are some "in the making" photos so you can see her wonderful undies!

................and of course her dress.  Love the antique fabric, ignore the messy work area!

I just have to share the lovely email that I just received from the lady who bought this Izannah!
Joy oh joy, there’s great excitement here with the arrival of Izannah ‘three’ whom i have named Charlotte. Kathy, she is so lovely, her dear little face has the sweetest expression... oh my, and her clothing is perfect in every way, simple adorable.. i love the fabric and i love how her sweet chemise can be exposed over her shoulders.  Oh her sweet little socks & shoes, there’s so much loveliness, i just can’t put her down, there’s so much to take in, i don’t want to miss a thing lol. Thank you also for the fabric scraps, which i will include in the quilt i plan to make for her.

I thought you’d like to see a photo of the three Izannah sisters. I’ve placed Charlotte, on the cane chair in my bedroom, with her sisters.. i’m so pleased they fit together so snugly.  Charlotte’s a little taller than her sisters and she looks just right in the middle, don’t you think?  

I love that they all look similar, but with very individual facial expression. They are lovely beyond words, Kathy, and i truly appreciate the love and care you put into creating each of these unique dolls... i love and treasure my Izannah dolls!!

Thank you so much,

Oh Kathy!
I feel like a broken record when I speak of your art -- without peer.

It would be grand to see a coffee table book full of glossy full color photos of your work.
