Another Izannah Picture

Hi, all - it has been my mission to post as many pictures of original Izannah Walker dolls here as possible. Recently a fellow member in an antique doll group I'm in posted pictures she took at the UFDC convention in Atlanta. While there, Alicia was able to take pictures of an original Izannah Walker doll on display. Alicia has graciously offered to share her pictures with us. Thanks, Alicia!

While there, Alicia was able to take a picture of a very interesting male doll which looks very much like a Walker doll. There is no way to know if this male doll below is an Izannah Walker, doll, but some features (hands! ears!) look very similar, don't they?

Here I've brightened the pictures to show the details in the costume.
