This is a original personal photo I have of Margit Nilsen's that is a display of 2 of her mannequins . This photo also came from her private owned photo's . The sitting mannequin I have seen come up for auction a few times . She does not stand was meant to be seated . I was lucky to get many photo's of her work all original photo's not reprints after her death .
She picked her display back grounds carefully as I have several that photo;s that show what a background she could pick from . Circa 1940 . She did start displaying them in about 1938 and changed the material she used some held up well while others did not they tended to get misshapen after years and years .
Her mannequins always turned heads in store windows
