Three Izannah Walker Dolls to be Auctioned by Theriault's


Theriault's April 6th auction, “Strike Up the Band", is a One Owner Auction of the Nancy Smith Collection. Nancy Smith's collection  features three Izannah Walker dolls and one doll described as having "Izannah Walker and Martha Chase lineage". The auction will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2024, at Theriault's Gallery, Annapolis, Maryland. Preview 9AM ET. Auction 11AM ET.

This collection of dolls spans the breadth of Izannah's creative time, with a classic ringlet curl doll, a label post patent doll, and a transitional doll. The addition of a doll that is made by Izannah but repainted by the Chase factory underlines the connection of process between Izannah Walker's work and Martha Chase's dolls. 

In a collection of YouTube videos, Florence Theriault shows Nancy Smith's Collection in its entirety. The Izannah Walker dolls are featured in the second video of the series, which can be found here:
