This wonderful pin up :-) oops I mean mannequin would have been found in store windows , counter tops to advertise their item in a small size . They were invaluable during WWII when supplies and fabric was limited . They were working girls .
She stands a large 30 inchs tall and has removable arm to dress her .
She is modeling the girdle of the day . Oh I would not want to ever wear one but also has hooks to hold her nylons up . The maker is not always clear on these girls since several companies scuplted and produced them . Some put paper labels and some had their name on the stand she would be on. She has holes in bottom of shoes that long rods went up her leg which were attached to a heavy base , Gotta love the 40's :-)
This is NOT a doll but I did add her in that catagory also , she is a store display .
