Izannahs at June Withington's Auction

This is a reminder of dolls coming up to auction...

Dolls to be auctioned by Withington Auction, Inc.
June 16 and 17, 2011

Look above to see two new tabs, one which says Original Dolls for Sale and Original Dolls to Be Auctioned.   I will be providing links to places with original antique Izannah Walker available for purchase or to be auctioned.  When you search for "Izannah Walker dolls at auction" a sea of Ebay and other links for reproduction Izannah Walker dolls comes up.   I love Izannah Walker style dolls - in fact I make them myself.   But if you are looking for information on original antique dolls, then visit here at the Izannah Walker Chronicles for the latest available sources.  

If you are an antique doll dealer or auction company and would like to have a link provided to your site of the Izannah doll you have available, please email me so that I can list your doll there. 

If you are a reader of this blog, and you notice a doll for sale or at auction that I have missed, please email me to remind me using the contact information in the tabs at the top.  Thanks!

Gail Wilson's Molded Izannah Workshop

Image copyright Gail Wilson

Gail Wilson has studied original Izannah Walker dolls and is making a metal mold of her sculpt based on these studies.  She will be offering an in person workshop on making dolls with this mold, and has this to say about the workshop:

"This doll is the result of much study and will never be offered in kit form. This is a unique, one-time opportunity to make a doll in the same way Izannah did herself from new metal molds which I will be using only for finished dolls. This retreat will be a bit longer than usual beginning late in the day on Friday and running to lunch on Monday (holiday). Total cost for all materials, shared room and board will be $775."
