She ended up with a very nice basket of an unusual form and a Skookums Doll. I found a nice little Stieff squirrel for my daughter Cheryl and a doll chair.
It is known that izannah Walker made some small furniture. I have not seen any documentation as to what that furniture looked like. I do know that this type of small ladder back chair is often found and or used with the Walker dolls. Over and over I have seen these chairs pictured with the dolls and have not often seen the chairs for sale. They are a bit pricey to me. So today was my day and even though the original seat is gone and replaced with very inappropriate cane, I am happy to bring home the little chair in original paint and having no other repairs or replacements.
I will seek some shall diameter "paper rush" which I know how to use and replace the seat.
If you have a chair similar to this green example, please send photos to me and I will add them here to this same post. I have a similar sized one Jack bought for me years ago at Brimfield. Nice old blue paint on that one but not the same kind of chair.
Monday postscript... Collector friend sent a picture of a sweet small doll chair with her Izannah Walker doll. This little chair looks older and handmade rather than the manufactured one I purchased at the antique show.
Doll maker Paula Walton sent photos of some of her small chairs. Two of these are just like the one I have. I would like to find out where these were manufactured. A company like Joel Ellis that made the doll carriages could have made these. The paint on the chairs is not typical of what we see on the buggies. E
Off Topic, my broccoli is making sweet heads! All of the beets froze in the recent extreme cold. Normally here beets are ok in the winter. The life of a farmer is ever challenging.
