    Great to see these new posts, I never really heard on them until this decade, you must have been collecting these for years !~

    Thanks Phil :-) I suspect many people have not seen them but they were working girls and did serve a purpose . I of coarse have loved them for as long as I can remember . I first learned of them from museum. Many were destoyed and or not stored proper and were thrown away . They may have been put in a stores basement and forgotten . I try to save as many as I can by restoring them . This girl has had no restoration. I like the look of the era and would have as many as I could afford :-) Some are very art deco and spendid to display one in a room . Many thanks xoxox

    This is a pretty cool salesman sample!
  10. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Thank you signaholic , one never thinks of them as also being traveling salesman's samples to display and sell door to door . Gee I are there still traveling salesman ? I guess not . It is era of internet shopping . Many thanks !!

    Yep, we have certainly moved on, for whatever reason, far away from our much more interesting past. I feel sorry for the kids of even 20 years ago, not having the great memories those of us over 50 have.

    I wonder how awkward it was for the salesman to talk to the lady's door-to-door about undergarments and lingerie? Seriously though, it was an age of modesty back in the day. And then closing the deal you would have to ask for all their measurements and sizes, yes?

    Thank you racer4four, and fortapache I appeciate you stopping at my post and giving it a love :-)
    Jono I think the woman would likely say small.medium or large . At the time people were used to buying door to door . This man may have sold to stores as he traveled so they would carry the Luxite line in their store :-)
