This is a molded head Izannah Walker made from months of study of a real (and quite wonderful) antique Izannah Walker from the collection of my old friend and well-known dollmaker, R John Wright. From the original wax sculpt of her, a metal mold was made from which to heat press layers of cloth in the same manner as Izannah did herself. The first trial metal mold was my learning experience with John and Susan Wright as gracious and patient mentors. The new metal molds are in the process of undergoing the necessary revisions to be able to make dolls with cloth pressed heads. Meanwhile, I have decided to revise my plan and make use of this molded head covered in special cotton knit as an official kit. This is due in part to fill a need for dollmakers to make a nice version of a pretty true Izannah look without having to sculpt a doll by themselves. It will take about one month to make the necessary master molds in order to continue making heads from this design at which point I will kit the head, templates for face detail and hairlines, study materials and all supplies (stuffing extra) to make the complete doll with undies, shoes and stockings (leather, undies fabric, lace and notions included). Patterns will be included for many pieces of clothing, including boys styles (these fabrics not included). Price of the kit is $175 Add to Cart
Extra Head with knit $68 Add to Cart

• Pre-painting by GW for your doll kit's head: I am no longer able to offer pre-painting of the sausage curl style due to time constraints, but I still will do the wispy style, although I have changed this to one of the styles Izannah used which has always been my favorite - I call it the double wispy style. See photo below of museum Izannahs with this style. (This is the fee for painting only). Double Wispy Curls $225 Add to Cart

Extra Head (only sold to kit owners) with knit for optional knit-over $68 Add to Cart
• Recommended Special tools (besides the ordinary ones needed) available on the Supplies pages: 1/8" Comb Brush, New Comb Brush Tool plus click here to see the pointy Q-tips and make-up brushes that will make your work easier.

The doll receiving the most "must haves" at the 2018 UFDC Convention Sales Room in my booth was the Hitty size Izannah Walker I have been promising. This first one will come as pictured but there will be many more outfits to choose from later once she (and he) is in full production, plus most of Hitty's clothes will fit not to mention all of Hitty's accessories and furniture. She will come with a stand and the tiny cat.
These dolls are now discontinued.

The new smaller boy will look like this but like the Hitty size girl, will have molded arms and legs with cloth body between. Elements of his outfit are still awaiting arrival of new fabrics and will be a new design but similar to historical boy's outfits of the times. He will also have his own accessory of a small wooden wagon filled with blocks.

• Choice of color scheme of browns
• Choice of color scheme of blues

These dolls are now discontinued.

This is a picture of my 8" Izannah Walker boy and the new one will be smaller in the Hitty size of 6.5" as a companion to the very popular Hitty-size Izannah Girl.


This is a molded head Izannah Walker made from months of study of a real (and quite wonderful) antique Izannah Walker from the collection of my old friend and well-known dollmaker, R John Wright. This size, 12", is, like the 18", 10", 8" and 6.5" sizes I do, is a reduced version of my own sculpting of that doll. She has the traditional knit over on her molded head and a cloth body with the separately attached thumbs. This first new addition is dressed in wonderful pinks with a windowpane voile apron, lace trimmed and pin-tucked camisole, petticoat and pantalets and real leather 4 button boots. Or, the doll in her 3-piece undies, shoes and stockings is also available.

These dolls are now discontinued.
