Manikin
(484 items)

This is a late 30's into 40's mannequin marked on back Fashiondol ( One L) These were produced by Latexture Prod. NY
They came in 12 1/2 inch size and 15 which had a more rubber feel and often rough to touch . This Tall Girl is 22 inches tall and made of a higher quality rubber and plastic mixture she is heavy unlike the other 2 which are light weight . They are often found with hairline cracks and because she was more pliable when new she stood on her legs and they formed a bit out of shape as they hardened like the Deb U doll Margit Nilsen did .
She has been professionally dressed in a wedding gown although these manikins were often used to display in store a pattern or a dress in small scale during WWII the Fashiondol was made as a set with patterns to teach sewing . I have not seen a Simplicity Pattern which the smaller ones came with for a 22 inch size like her . She is first one I have seen in 30 years of collecting manikin dolls and miniature display figures .

    Another treasure! And the attire is in such fine condition, too! So glad that you found this and that you are preserving it! : )

    Thank you MiKKo :-) I hope to save as many as my wallet will handle that is not enough to save all the ones that need it . I do not think I will restore her cracks she is so original and rare I believe I will let her wrinkles show since she is 70 yrs old at least . I should look so good at 70 :-) Take care my friend xoxo
