Because a generous collector shared pictures of the Little Red Riding Hood Izannah Walker, we can compare a post-patent Izannah shoulderplate with a pre-patent shoulderplate. Apparently the post patent Izannahs are more rare. I never would have guessed that. The first 3 pictures are of pre-patent shoulderplates, where the 2nd skin is glued over the edge of the shoulderplate. The last picture is of the post-patent shoulderplate, where the shoulderplate was sewn onto the top of the body.
Please email me if you have information, pictures, sources, etc. about original Izannah Walker dolls. The goal of this site is to be a free clearinghouse of information for Izannah doll lovers. Copyright of pictures published on this site are retained by the collector, museum, or artist etc, who took the picture.
