Yesterday I recived an auction alert from Skinner's for a doll which was listed as "possibly Izannah Walker". The doll is pictured above. Whether she is an Izannah Walker doll remains to be seen, but she is a very interesting folk art doll!
UPDATE: Here is the hammer price of the doll shown above at $4,800.
My auction alert for this Izannah Walker doll which sold yesterday for the hammer price of $2,600 must have gone astray. I love seeing Izannah dolls in this worn condition, as there are many clues about construction.
While reading about a folk art cloth doll possibly made by Izannah Walker I happened upon this auction which happened yesterday. The auction alert for this doll went astray in my inbox. I love seeing dolls that have wear! What clues they can give us about construction! How loved they are!
