    i have never seen this size before - same style as the 12'' versions - but a whopping 20'' tall- original box - original base - and a pretty blouse and skirt hand sewn by some lucky little girl back in the '40s.

      Hi she is lovely I think she is the best of latexture Mannquins I have had several and do love them , here is one of mine with box and her pattern that came with her
      Great post ! She is not rare but much less common to find than 12 1/2 inch size which are abundant .

      Hi skip there is little documentation on Latexture Products Inc NYC . The closest studies come on these sewing mannequins is that they started in 1940-1949 was their known period of being produced . The 15 In is also a very lovely one of their mannequins . You mannequin look like she was dressed as most are found in a homemade outfit and not always well sewn . So she represents how they would have been used by untrained seamstress :-)
