I am so pleased to show you my “LAST” Izannah Walker doll. She is now SOLD. There will be no more from my hands. This doll is 19 1/2” tall
and has 3 pieces of antique undergarments and her dress is hand made by me using
Antique Calico from about 1870. Her bonnet goes with her as well.

Keep scrolling down to find out why this is my "LAST" Izannah Walker doll
To all of you who have been on this Izannah Walker journey with me and have
followed my progress and purchased my dolls, I humbly thank you.
I made the decision a while ago to let go of the “Izannah Walker Doll” part
of my doll making business. My heart truly is in making English Wooden Queen Anne style
dolls so that will be my main focus now. For several years now I have made
Izannah Walker dolls and loved every moment of the sewing, painting and making
those 1850’s little dresses!
I think I have a achieved what I set out to do, and that was to be able to
make Izannah Walker dolls that looked like Izannah’s dolls. I went to the very
expensive task of making molds off of 3 of the 6 antique Izannah Walker original
dolls that I sought out, purchased and studied. Just to be able to hold the originals and
study how they were made and feel the history in my hands gave me all the inspiration I needed to make Izannah Walker dolls. The journey has been wonderful and fulfilling and a great creative challenge for me. For this, I thank Izannah Walker for showing the world her amazing talent in the field of early doll making through her portrait dolls.
I will be disclosing in a week or so the person that is taking over my
molds, patterns, and tips. She is as equally excited to be making these dolls
with my original molds as I was when I made my First Izannah Walker doll. I
will be happy to share this info and a link to her site just the moment she lets
me know I can share the secret!!
She is SOLD
SHE HAS NOW FOUND A HOME
