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.

    Hi, Mani, was not sure you had the picture, I believe she is not peg legged but just has her leg crossed, and probably wears high heels. Her only handicap is smoking !~Phil.

    Phil I think she is being scolded because she lost her shoe and was do on stage :-) and the doll has a attitude as to say " I don't care I will do what I want " :-)
  13. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    Thanks for the comment Mani, I think she has no business with the cigarette in her mouth and yes she is very pig headed !~
  14. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
    LOL Phil I think she was using the cigarette as a prop to look more intense :-) I don't see Margit coughing so it is not lit :-)
  15. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    The photo you had me work on of Margits lucky cat, the heroine had on a very male british style colonial costume and this costume looks more like a male russian costume or some variant.
  16. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
    Gee I think she reminds me of myself as a teen LOL pig headed :-) And I am sure I had her hair do once as I posted it and I have a cigarette in my hand with can of hairspray which could have exploded .
  17. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
    Yes I did have that hair :-)

    That's too funny I was going to mention that photo.
  19. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
    Yes I think that doll was me in prior life lol bro :-)

    I did see this photo in some site with the mention of being scolded to the dangers of smoking.
    on other lines dolls must be used to scolding:
    http://pinterest.com/pin/74379831318358329/

    Also saw this quote on the early part of the century's "disgust" of women smoking;
    "Women are obliged to smoke in corners, when they are at clubs or races. How long this state of things will continue it is impossible to say. At the present rate of progress, women and young girls will be smoking in the streets with men. It is a horror and a crying shame; for the debasing character of the custom will inevitably destroy the delicacy of women."

    Looks like a play mate for Simon with a risque side!
  56. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 9 months ago
    No Leah, I had no proof. Probably just a wild hunch and a lot of wishing based on the mannequin type doll she holds.
  57. Manikin Manikin, 9 months ago
