Withington's to Auction Izannah Dolls


Two Izannah Walker dolls will be presented at auction on June 16 & 17 by Withington's.   To receive more information about these dolls, contact Withington Auction, Inc.




I always enjoy seeing an Izannah Walker doll that I have not seen before.  The girl doll above reminds me of a doll called "Izannah" that was in Maureen Popp's collection.



The boy doll is very interesting, having bare feet and a boys suit on.  I have been trying to date the clothing.  If you have an idea of when that type of suit would have been worn by a boy, please share.   I found an image at the New York Public Library Digital Gallery, shown below, from 1870, which has some similarities:  


And another from 1860:
