Both of this evening’s dolls have a special alphabet body covering or “second skin”. It seemed appropriate for autumn and the beginning of the school year. I’ve always been charmed by these illustrated letter prints, which are most commonly seen on antique china dolls. This fabric print is also some times known as an “educational print”, and if you search for them you will find quite a few different ones on the bodies of a variety of antique dolls.

DOLL A. Isane $1595.00 SOLD

Doll A Isane

This Isane is approximately 18 inches tall. She comes fully dressed in a handmade chemise, pantalettes, petticoat and dress. Her brown print dress has extra fullness in the skirt and two graduated growth tucks. The sleeves of the dress are also tucked. All fabrics, lace and buttons are antique. PLEASE NOTE I am offering this doll for sale now, but it will take approximately a week to ten days for her to ship. Perhaps you noticed that she has two left arms! Sadly this is not the first time this has happened to me. When I started sewing her together I made the startling discovery that she didn’t have a right arm! lol So I am going to have to make her one and multiple coats of paint are going to have to dry before I can ship her.

She is dressed in an antique doll petticoat, antique pair of bloomers, and a chemise and dress made of antique fabrics and notions.

A More Perfect Surface Version of Isabeau

Doll 2 ~ A More Perfect Surface Version of Isabeau ~ $1950.00 SOLD

This pressed cloth doll was made in a handmade mold of my original antique Izannah Walker doll Isabeau. After I made the mold I poured a plaster positive, then corrected all of the surface texture so that the plaster positive would represent Isabeau more like she was when she was newly made. Next I created a new mold, which I used to make this sweet, demure doll. She is 18-3/4 inches tall. This Isabeau has scalloped topped painted boots, and an off white linen second skin. She is dressed in an antique doll petticoat, antique pair of bloomers, and a chemise and dress made of antique fabrics and notions. Her dress is made from two coordinating double pink fabrics. The sleeves of her dress are gathered and banded. She has an amazing sunbonnet, that I reproduced from an antique doll bonnet in my collection. The bonnet took me two days to make, the original antique doll bonnet and this reproduction are both made in the same manner as actual human bonnets and are extremely detailed.

So What WAS in the Bottom of Those Boxes? A Fun Look at More of the Contents From Yesterdays Unboxing Video, and a First Peek At My Favorites

Guess what I found in those boxes???

Emma Blue is just as happy as I am with some of the contents I found! ❤

Great Excitement Here in my Studio! Two HUGE Boxes of Antique Undergarments Have Arrived for the Izannahs!

As I am sure you all know by now, I dress the reproduction Izannah Walker dolls I make in antique fabrics. Usually that means that I am using fabric that I glean from antique garments and quilts that are no longer able to be restored. On rare occasions I am lucky enough to find antique doll underwear for a few of the dolls… So I am sure you will understand how thrilled I am that I have come across an enormous quantity of antique doll petticoats and pantalettes, plus some other partial woman’s and children’s pieces that I will be able to fashion into chemises! It may take me longer to alter these garments to fit my dolls, than if I made them from scratch, but I love the idea of cleaning, repairing and altering them so that they can continue on in the wardrobes of my dolls ❤

Here is a first peek at some of the wonderful things I now have in stock for all of my future Izannahs! Though I do imagine that the little cloth girls who live with me will undoubtedly attempt to talk me out of a few things for themselves…

Wishing you a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the A Sweet Remembrance studios!

Happy 204th Birthday Izannah Walker ~ This Year’s Birthday Dolls! SOLD Two Reproductions of Large 22.5 inch Early Izannah Walker Dolls with the Endearing Feeling of the Best Vernacular Folk Art

BOTH DOLLS HAVE BEEN SOLD, Thank you so much for coming to meet them ❤

Welcome to the final evening of my 2021 Izannah Walker 204th Birthday Celebration ❤ Tonight I would like to introduce you to my latest reproduction Izannah Walker dolls. I am offering two one dolls that I have always called “Early Izannah”. Today I decided that it is high time these wonderful large, early style 22.5 inch dolls made have a proper name! From now on I will be referring to the dolls made from this mold as “Charlotte” or “Lottie” ❤ As there are two of them available for sale at the moment one shall be Charlotte and the other Lottie.

Both of the dolls tonight are dressed in chemises, pantalettes, petticoats, and dresses made from mid-nineteenth century brown and tan gingham, brown stockings and red leather shoes. They are 22.5 inch tall reproductions of a pre-1855 Izannah Walker doll. These amazing dolls have bare feet, three ringlet curls in front of each ear and nine at the nape of their necks. Their paint surface and modeling are true to the original doll from which their mold was made.

SOLD Charlotte has a tucked petticoat trimmed in hand knit lace and an antique off white linen second-skin.

SOLD Lottie has a hemstitched linen petticoat and her second skin is make from antique russet colored glazed cotton.

*Did you know that the term gingham came into use in the 17th century and originally referred to woven stripe fabric, but came to refer to the familiar woven check sometime later. When you’re dealing with a fabric that’s over five hundred years old… naturally some things do get lost in translation. “Gingham” comes from the Malayan word genggang, or “striped.” The way we identify gingham, as being a contrasting-check, was not the way in which the fabric was originally known. True gingham is distinguished primarily for being a “dyed in the yarn” fabric, meaning the yarn is dyed before it is woven. Secondly, gingham is marked by having the colored yarns (the warp) going against the uncolored yarns (the weft), to create a lightweight texture on both faces, meaning it’s essentially reversible. The name originated in the southeast Asian countries where gingham is said to have been born. The fabric balance between colored, and neutral yarns was seen as being perfect for striped shirts. As the fabric made its journey into the Western world, it retained its name, but lost its once signifying stripes.

Charlotte – $2150.00 SOLD

Sweet Charlotte is slightly more refined than her sister, with lace on her petticoat and a less worn paint surface.

Extra Dresses – If you are purchasing either Charlotte or Lottie and would like to have them to be fitted for an extra dress before they travel to you, I have an amazing unwashed mid-19th century fabric that would suit them perfectly! A plainly styled extra dress from this fabric, made to fit, would be $315 for their 22.5 inch size. ❤

mid-19th century cotton fabric printed with russet and brown roses.

Thank you so much for coming to our annual Izannah Walker Birthday Celebration for 2021! We hope that you enjoyed it just as much as the dolls and I have!

If you enjoyed meeting both Charlotte and Lottie, then you will undoubtedly wish to come back soon to see photos of their sister (yes they are triplets!) before she emigrates to Canada ❤ ❤ ❤

Charlcie SOLD$2200.

This is my third reproduction of Charlcie. The original doll is one that I purchased for my own collection, and is only an Izannah Walker head on a c.1900 baby doll cloth body, so I will be making her a new reproduction body. The antique Izannah Walker doll is named Charlcie, after my great-grandmother, Charlcie Savannah Suzybelle Walker.
This Charlcie is 23 inches tall. Her body is made of new 100% cotton, stuffed with organic cotton stuffing. Her head is pressed cloth and is made of silk stockinette, which has been painted with multiple layers of artist’s oils, as have her arms and legs. Her “second skin” body covering is made from antique raspberry pink glazed cotton. She is dressed entirely in antique fabrics, laces, and buttons. Her clothing includes a chemise, split pantelettes, a petticoat, two dresses, a nightgown and an apron. The pink dress is made from an antique woven check cotton. The skirt of the dress has hand sewn cartridge pleating (at the top instead of gathers).  The blue dress is an antique indigo and white print cotton. Her nightgown is a re-purposed antique baby gown and her apron is made from two antique double pink fabrics. It took me approximately 140 hours (of actual working time) to create the doll and clothing. I made her using the same methods and same materials (with just one or two exceptions where the materials are no longer available and I’ve had to use modern equivalents) that Izannah Walker used to make the original dolls.

Charlcie is being offered for sale on a first come basis. The way it works is simple. If you would like to purchase her, please email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com. I’ll go by the time stamp when I receive your email to determine whose request is first.

Charlcie and her complete wardrobe sells $2200.00, which is less than the pieces would be individually. The price includes free shipping to any address in the continental U.S. Dolls are mailed via USPS Priority Mail and are insured for their full value. International Orders  will be charged exact postage + a $10.00 handling fee for all international locations, except Canada, to help off-set the time it takes me to deal with customs forms – and in many cases the requirement that I actually take the package to the post office rather than scheduling it for pick-up.

Payment may be made via PayPal, credit card, layaway or personal check. Sales tax is 6.35% if I am shipping to a Connecticut address.
