Izannah Walker Type Doll at Sandwich Auction House
Usually I do not talk about "Izannah Walker type" dolls here, because often they are not in any way comparable. That's not the case with this doll. There are so many aspects of the Izannah "type" doll that are similar to antique Izannah Walker dolls, that this doll is worth sharing pictures of here. On the back of the shoulderplate is written "patent applied for". Is this a transitional doll from early Izannahs to the later post patent dolls. The pencil writing could have been added at any time - from the time she was created to a recent collector's note.
