UPDATE: This doll sold for $4,977, which I believe includes the premium.
Skinner Auctions auctioned an Izannah Walker Doll at their Holiday Auction on December 15th and 16th in Marlborough, Massachusetts. The doll is pictured above, with description below:
Oil-painted Cloth Izannah Walker Girl Doll, Rhode Island, c. 1860, painted brown eyes, pink mouth and cheek coloring, brown hair with center part in front of applied ears, painted arms and hands, cloth body with sloping shoulders, lower limbs painted with black shoes, white cotton undergarments, a pink striped patterned dress and embroidered apron with cotton bonnet, ht. 19 1/2 in., (paint wear, flesh tones of face old repaint, scattered retouch).
The hammer price for this doll was $4,200.00 plus buyers premium and taxes. What a beauty!

Yes, that was a bargain. I think this doll had a bit of repaint, I'm not sure. Wish I'd been able to go to the auction to see her!ReplyDelete
