Saturday in my Studio – One New Doll Finished & Available For Sale – SOLD

New Doll for Sale www.izannahwalker.com

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit.  This doll is now SOLD.

Early this evening I put the finishing touches on my latest reproduction Izannah Walker doll.  I’ve been working pretty much non-stop on her and a few of her sisters for the past several weeks.  I love this doll!  I made her specifically for someone who is as enamored with the construction of Izannah Walker dolls as I am.  If you have studied Izannah’s dolls closely, you will know that some of her dolls have very visible stockinette and head seams that show every stitch where they were joined together.  I wanted that same look for this doll and I think that I have managed to capture all those details that show this doll’s two piece pressed cloth head construction to great advantage.  She has a very sweet, serene expression and shows a moderate amount of “age” and wear.  She has a bit of flaking and crackled paint, along with some worn and rubbed areas, just where little hands would have held and cuddled her.

At the moment she is dressed in pantalettes, a long chemise, a petticoat and a red and white cotton print dress.  All of her clothing fabrics and second skin are antique.  I do have a very good stock of antique fabrics at the moment, due to my summer  shopping adventures; so if you would like to order additional clothing to go along with her I have some fantastic colors and prints for you to choose from.  Dressed as is she’s priced at $1250.00.  Please contact me to discuss additional wardrobe items, or if you have any questions or would like to see more photos.  I may be reached at 860-355-5709 during reasonable East Coast hours or by email at paula@asweetremembrance.com.  The antique child’s chair in original red paint is also available for sale.  I happen to have a pair of them, they are $40 each or $75 for the pair.  Both the doll and the chairs have free shipping to U.S. addresses and any item may be placed on lay-away with terms to fit your budget.

  1. She is beautiful! She looks like she is deep in thought.

  2. Thank you! It’s amazing that she kept that peaceful expression with all the craziness around here lately 🙂

  3. 8 August, 2013 Dear Paula, I was just looking at the beautiful Izanna doll you posted on the website. I have a few questions, how tall is she, can dolls be ordered that do not have distressed areas on their faces, like the worn area over the dolls right eye? I hope that I don’t offend you by asking this question. What is the down payment on orders, if there is an agreed payment plan set up can you make extra payments if you want? Do you sell patterns for their dresses, the reason I ask is that I have a piece of old red fabric that I would like to use at some point, I guess I have been saving it for an Izanna Walker doll if I was ever able to own one of my own. I will try and give you a call in tomorrow since it is almost 3:30 here in Tucson, too late to call you today. I have looked at some Izanna dolls on the web and none have ever come close to yours, some are downright scary to me anyway. So, I will look forward to a phone visit soon, take care!

    • Marilyn,

      I’m more than happy to answer any and all of your questions, please don’t worry about offending me 🙂

      1. If you are ordering a custom made doll, I will make it any way you want. If you would like a doll that looks like it was “new” I can certainly do that. Generally when I make the dolls to look the way I want, I do make them look worn and aged. Very few antique Izannah Walker dolls have survived in pristine condition. If you study the dolls there are some very predictable ways that they have aged, due to their construction. I actually love this about them, and to me, my dolls with signs of age look more normal/:real” and less like reproductions. When I made the doll shown in this post, I intentionally had areas of the stockinette visible. You can read more information about my custom made dolls on my website, here is the link: http://www.asweetremembrance.com/store/WsDefault.asp?One=279

      2.If you place a custom order I ask for a 25% deposit, with the balance due when the doll is completed. You may place custom made dolls on lay-away. I’m happy to set up lay-away payments to fit your budget. Tell me how many payments you would like to make and I will schedule the doll to be finished by the date of your final payment. The first payment will be due when you place your order. If you decide to pay the doll off sooner, I may not be able to change my work schedule. At times my schedule is booked very tightly, so if you plan to pay your lay-away off early, it’s a good idea to tell me that as soon as possible.

      3. Yes I do sell clothing patterns. Click on this link and it will take to to my website where you may order a pattern : http://www.asweetremembrance.com/store/WsDefault.asp?One=112

      I look forward to talking to you tomorrow.

      Paula

  4. Hello Paula, Just wanted to let you know my I sent a check off yesterday(Sat.) for the Izannah doll deposit, I am so excited, can’t wait to see her!

    • Hi Marilyn,

      Thank you! I’ll let you know when it arrives here. I have a bunch of fabric photos to email you later tonight, once I unload them from my camera and have a chance to sort through them.

      Paula

  5. 12 August 2013, Hello Paula, Just wanted to thank you for the picture of the possible fabrics, I keep looking at them , but so far I can’t pick one for sure. I really like the “C” in the black and red grouping but just am not positive at this moment. What do you think, is it too bold or large scale for the doll?

    • Marilyn,

      No hurry at all, take your time deciding. The clothing is the last thing I make, so there is no hurry. C in the black & red group is a larger print. I think it would look OK on you doll. If you will look at the clothing belonging to antique Izannahs not all of the prints are small scale. In fact I actually like some of the larger scale prints on the dolls. I’ll take a photo tomorrow of the fabric you like next to one of my dolls, so that you can get an idea of how it would look 🙂

      Paula
