Two years ago I was fortunate to welcome an amazing Izannah Walker doll to my doll family.  I eventually decided to name her Josephine after one of my father’s grandmothers, Henrietta Josephine Wallace Prather. https://izannahwalker.com/2016/11/01/lost-in-a-daydream-of-past-childhoods/

Last year I was discussing Josephine with Monica Bessette. Monica told me that she was just sure my Josephine was the doll called “Tilly Lamb” in the book Your Dolls and Mine A Collectors Handbook by Janet Pagter Johl. In further discussion Monica also mentioned that Josephine is pictured in The Collector’s Encyclopedia of Dolls by Dorothy S. Coleman and Elizabeth A. Coleman. Josephine and I are very thankful to Monica for helping bring Josephine’s full name to light. Now she is Tilly J. Lamb! All of her sisters here at the doll’s house are following my mother’s family tradition of calling the siblings by their middle names, so she continues to be called Josephine, as well as Tilly J. Lamb on official occasions. ❤

At some point someone decided to stick something on the tip of her nose!!! Odd, because other than some slightly worn paint the tip of her original nose is intact… The Collector’s Encyclopedia of Dolls 1968 by Dorothy S. Coleman and Elizabeth A. Coleman

On Tuesday I introduced you to Tilly J. Lamb’s younger sisters, my first four reproductions of sweet Josephine. Two of them have already found wonderful new homes. Miss A. Lamb and Miss D. Lamb are still looking for doll families of their very own.  https://izannahwalker.com/2018/09/25/meet-the-lamb-sisters-4-dolls-available-for-sale-happy-201st-birthday-izannah-part-4/

Both sisters are dressed in long sleeved brown dresses, made from antique fabric. They will come with an antique petticoat, pantalettes and a chemise made from antique fabric, Two brass brooches, one at the neck and a slightly smaller one at the waist, and a tiny pincushion. The pincushions are like the ones shown in the American Girl’s Book by Miss Eliza Leslie, although they are a traditional form that dates back at least to the later part of the 18th century.  Their dresses were made using a pattern taken from an original Izannah Walker dress, and are perfect for gardening since the long sleeves protects the girl’s pale skin from excessive sunlight and the practical brown fabric does not show dirt. ❤ Yet the dresses look sweet enough for a party with the addition of a few accessories.  The dolls are $1575.00 each, which includes free insured shipping to any U.S. address, with no sales tax unless they are shipped to CT. They are being sold on a first come basis and will be ready to ship out at the beginning of next week. Paypal, check, money order, credit cards and lay-away accepted.  Please email p.walton.asweetremembrance@gmail.com to purchase or with questions.  I’ll go by the time I receive your email if more than one person asks to buy the same doll.

One of the truly amazing things about the reproductions of Tilly Lamb is the paint surface. All of her gentle wear and age is present in her new sisters. It’s hard to show you just how amazingly detailed it is….
