Manikin
(481 items)

This wonderful hauty looking manikin I found in all these pieces . You can see how even when you think they are a loss they can be made whole again . She has a Very Deco look and I left clothes off so you could see her restored . She is 24" Tall and ready to be on display once again . Maker unknown . There were several Companies that made these including Rubberlite , Margit Nilsen and more we look at attributes of manikin to identify who may have made them when unmarked . Some had paper labels on body and some had name on there stands . She likely was used as a store counter display to wear clothes from a pattern they sold and could use very little material vs making it in full size .

    You are so welcome Scandinavain and Thank you for kind note . I am hoping some people will have an interest in preserving these wonderful pieces of history and they also make a grand statement in a decorating a room as a work of art . Enjoy I will post more but I don't want to over do my welcome :-)
