The 18" brown-complexioned doll in Day One of Theriault's Rosalie auction netted $80,000 (plus buyer's premium). This is a new record for Izannah Walker dolls, passing the auction record set last year for John Thayer. This doll is special amongst Izannah Walker dolls because of her applied wool hair, being the only known Izannah doll with a brown complexion, and having provenance of coming directly from the Walker family (via Maurine Popp to Richard Wright to Rosalie Whyel).
Robin Wyatt graciously shared the following images she took from the preview period at Theriault's Day One Rosalie auction.
Collectors of dolls and makers of dolls alike will be very interested in these images. Thanks go to Robin Wyatt for giving us this study opportunity.
