My mission for this blog in 2008 was to create the site I wished existed - a site for doll makers and collectors who love Izannah Walker dolls to see more examples for study. For many years I researched every day Izannah dolls coming to auction, and wrote auction companies asking for additional pictures. At the time there were very few images of Izannah dolls online, as auction companies didn't put their catalogs online. Sometimes I traveled to document dolls coming up for auction and shared those images here. Sometimes collectors have shared images. There are enough images on this blog to assist any student of Izannah Walker dolls. Please scroll through the back posts. Below the thumbnail images link to the posts on that particular doll.

Putting together the pictorial directory will be an ongoing process.. Some great dolls have been featured on this site over the years. Thank you to the collectors, museums, magazines and auction companies which have shared information and images over the years!
I invite you to look at reproduction Izannah Walker dolls by Northdixie Designs (Dixie Redmond) at my art blog https://www.northdixiedesigns.com/search/label/Hopestill%20Izannah%20Walker%20Dolls
If you have an antique Izannah Walker doll you are considering selling, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of these magazines are now out of print.
