Izannah Walker Doll Hope Gets An X-Ray Picture

Yesterday I took the Izannah Walker doll to get an x-ray picture.  It's stuff like this that makes my family members shake their head.  But the vets office personnel were awesome.  They had a good time doing this.  

We didn't find anything earth shattering.  Izannah Walker details in her patent her process:
"After they are taken from the press the forms are filled with hair, cotton, or other stuffing, and a piece of wood having been centrally and longitudinally laid between the two for stiffening they are tightly pressed together and secured by sewing, pasting or gluing their edges to each other. "
What was surprising to me was the size of the piece of wood that was giving the doll structure. I hung the x-ray in the window of my office.  Hopefully I will get a better image of this printed off, but for now I kind of like the blue sky and autumn leaves peaking through.

Izannah Walker Doll Sold on Ebay


This lot of mixed dolls sold on Ebay today for $3,680.  The Izannah doll was labeled as a leather doll. The poor dear is missing an arm and a foot and has multiple breaks in her paint on the head.  She was purchased at an auction in northern Vermont.  But she is all original (what's left of her). 

I hear there is an Izannah Walker doll to be sold at Skinner's Discovery Auction next week.   As I find more information, I will post it.
