1940's Bridal store display mannequin 15 inches tall . I always photo nude so body construction and any body damage shows . This girl was dressed in a wedding gown . As you see on a mannequin their arms come off . This was to dress them easily . Most mannequins have removable arms but there are a few that have stationary arms . The had to have clothes sewn on to body as they don't bend . Another working girl that helped sell bridal gowns . Maker unknown . She is not highest quality as in anything these early miniature mannequins came in high quality and some pushed out fast without intricate detail like this one , her eyes are not as well painted for one .

    Hi pickr :-) No she is one I have had . Just got around to posting . Many are packed in boxes from last move and I have not decided where to display them . In mean time they stay safe in a climate controlled area . Dampness is the death of these girls :-) Thanks so much your face on my post always puts a smile on my face !**

    She sure has the 40's look, nice.
    I'm not going to touch the "I always photo nude" line. Are the removeable arms a good indication it's a mannequin and not a doll?

    Where do you live? ..... that butterfly is HUGE.

    Az removable arms with stubs on end that insert into arm hole is good indicator it is a mannequin . That butterfly hangs out on my refrigerator :-) Dolls unless arms fell off and they usually have a hook on them not a stub that looks like a piece of cut off wood dowel like a mannequin . Thanks for the love !

    All dolls should be photo'd nude it tell us much about who made era ect also damage . When people post dolls for me to ID I usually ask to undress so I can sww body construction and any markings including damage :-)

    laughing to hard to type fhrjr and vansky :-) Anyway with clothes on it is like picking out a car without the shell . You have no idea for sure what it is . The body tells a lot on dolls and mannequins just like a car . You might like the engine but when you pay and they put the body on car and it is a rusted out new car crashed into a bridge and rolled down a mountain and you thought you bought a collectible vintage car . But they just switched out the new engine for a old one . You need to see full package :-) They wear clothes in the house too ! :- )
