This post is a find for Manikin
Margit Nilsen was truly a Ziegfield girl ahead of her time !~
Photo lightly colored.
The attribution to Margit Nilson is based on other photos she produced with Mannequins that I have not seen that are not like her other mannequins that she produced for sale. Her photos were wittily produced with a message it seems and special characteristics the mannequins in the photos have. The shape of head and hair, the elongated limbs, almost stick-like legs, and the shape of the hands. They seem so different from average mannequins produced for sale. More detail to the face and more 3 dimensional eyes. I wish I had more info also on these strange photos which I just love to see !~
The photo I have seen of Margit is one of her in the 1920's likely and wearing her Ziegfield type outfit as she must have started out as a dancer. Very attractive lady.
