Three Different Izannah Heads to Choose From

Two Isabeaus in the center and on the left, with an Anna on the right.  Notice that the Isabeaus are a bit different in height.  This is a natural variation that occurs with hand made dolls and is one of the things that I feel gives Izannah Walker's dolls part of their charm.

I am now making reproduction Izannah Walker dolls using molds taken directly from three different original antique dolls made by Izannah Walker.

Zanna

Zanna

This is the first Izannah that I bought, named Zanna.  She is 18-1/2 inches tall.  You may order a reproduction Zanna with an authentically worn surface like the original, or you may order one that looks newer and has only a few signs of age.

Isabeau

Isabeau

My second Izannah is Isabeau.  The real Isabeau is currently 17-3/4  inches tall, but she has had some damage to her ankles, so I believe that she was once 18 to 18-1/2 inches tall like Zanna.  Isabeau has a very classic Izannah face and is the doll most people order from me.  You may order Isabeau with a worn original surface, or a new, slightly aged head.

Anna

Anna

Anna is my newest mold.  The real Anna belongs to a my friend Mary, who also happens to be a member of my Izannah doll making class.  Anna is smaller than Zanna and Isabeau and has more child like proportions.  Her face is fuller and her body has a chubbier waist.  Currently I am only offering Anna with a worn original surface.  If you would like to order her with a newer, less aged head and don’t mind waiting until I have time to make new more “perfect” molds, which will not be until sometime in 2014, you may go ahead and place an order.  Obviously if I have several people that order a “new” Anna, making the molds will move up my priority list.
