Last January, my friend Edyth O'Neill and I started writing an article about Izannah Walker dolls for Early American Life magazine. I am happy to say it will be published in the Christmas issue coming out very soon. (you can read the article that was originally published in EAL here).
Izannah Walker lived and worked in Central Falls, Rhode Island. I wonder what she would think of the town declaring bankruptcy? Perhaps her dolls were sold at W. C. Manchester, which sold toys as well as picture frames done with "work done in the most artistic manner."
Pleaseemail meif you have information, pictures, sources, etc. about original Izannah Walker dolls. The goal of this site is to be a free clearinghouse of information for Izannah doll lovers. Copyright of pictures published on this site are retained by the collector, museum, or artist etc, who took the picture.
This site began on January 1, 2008 as a way to share pictures of original Izannah Walker dolls with those who love them. It's come a long way! Thank you to all of you who have come here to read and research.
