Little Compton Historical Society's Izannahs

Jennifer Berkeley, a member of the Izannah Walker Dolls group, went on an Izannah tour recently in the Rhode Island, Massachusetts area.

Jennifer with the Izannah doll -
I recognize the happy look on her face!

Little Compton Historical Society was one of Jennifer's stops on her Izannah tour. I've posted small pictures of the Little Compton dolls here before, but Jennifer was able to get some larger closeups of the dolls at Little Compton. Thank you, Jennifer for sharing these epictures with the Izannah Walker Chronicles. Be sure to go to Jennifer's blog to see more - the links are at the top of the page of her blog. Beautiful! It makes me want to do an Izannah tour as well. Plus I have ancestors from Little Compton from early colonial times.

Little Compton's site has an improved online collection where you can read more about these dolls. Type Izannah into their search bar and information about the dolls will come up. The doll in green is a barefoot Izannah and is wearing Bru shoes.

Ida Mae: An Izannah Walker Doll

Back in the fall I visited with a wonderful lady, who shared her antique Izannah Walker doll with me, and allowed me to document her doll.  ...
