Izannah Walker Reproduction Doll.

The "second skin" is antique cotton fabric, late 1800's
Her two-pocket antique calico apron is pinned over the dress
and it is easily to remove.
Oil-painted stockinette head with six ringlets
across the back of her head and two more
on the sides.
The hand-sculpting is exquisite. My dolls have soft-textured head and body, also that lovely smooth ( another typical characteristic of these early dolls) delicate touch like well-worn old leather with a slight shine to it, which has been handed down through generations to the present day.
Her dress is made from a Civil War Era Calico fabric with swirling vines print and tiny cream polka dots on a turkey red background.
Turkey red was a color widely used to dye textiles in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Her undergarments include petticoat, chemise and bloomers. All made from antique fabrics.
