Lily #2 is SOLD

Lily #2 available for sale

Lily #2 has found a new home of her very own!

SOLD- Thank You!  I’ve just finished making Lily #2’s pantalettes, petticoat and sun bonnet.  Now that she is finished she is looking for a new home to call her own.

I am able to offer you reproductions of Lily due to the amazing generosity of my friend Susie, who owns the real Lily.  I am currently almost finished  restoring the original Lily and Susie very kindly told me that she wanted me to make a mold from her while she was here.  I’ll be chronicling Lily’s restoration journey here in the upcoming weeks. Lily has a very classic Izannah head and at 17 inches is the middle stair step between my  Isabeau and Izzybelle.

Martha Jenks Chase and Izannah Walker doll

I’m sure you are probably all familiar with this photo of Martha Jenks Chase holding her Izannah Walker doll that appeared in the wonderful article “The Search for Izannah Walker” by Monica Bessette, Doll News, Spring 1994. Look at the Izannah in this photo. I believe that the same mold was used to make this doll and the original Lily. If you do not have a copy of Monica’s article, you should. It is fascinating and a must read for all Izannahphiles!!!

  1. Hi Paula, Lily two is just beautiful! Everything about her is perfect! I’m thrilled to see these pictures of her. All of the pictures are wonderful, and especially the ones of her strolling in the garden with pansies and bleeding hearts – two of my favorite flowers of all time! My grandma always had these flowers growing in her garden, and so it is especially fun to see these pictures of sweet Lily in the garden with these flowers. Beautiful pictures for Mother’s Day weekend! Thank you! Susie

    • Susie,

      I love bleeding hearts and pansies too. They are in my favorite flower garden, which is at it’s best at the moment. Lily and I had a wonderful time looking at all the flowers! The smell was heavenly. Wishing you a very Happy Mother’s Day!
      xoxo,
      Paula
