    This is a Margit Nilsen 1940's miniature mannequin advertising Brocade design silverware and she was placed in a brocade skirt to lay the silverware on . . The original Ad for photo shoot is my property and one of a kind photo . My dear friend Phil Morris colored it in as it is originally in black and white . She was purchased on ebay and is unusual advertising item for Margit . She is in her original dress and all original painting . I have never seen another like her in my many years of collecting Miniature store mannequins.

      ~ OMG ~ Mani, that is just totally Delicious !!!! Real Eye Candy !!
    2. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 6 years ago
      Manikin, you have the finest original collection of Margit Nilsen. After examining the ad and the photos of your piece, it is obvious a piece used for advertising, and likely the original piece used for the ad. I will have to try to colour better again. This is a sensational find and one of a kind, possibly one of your best finds and an original piece of the very rarist kind !~xoxo
    3. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 6 years ago
      I am hoping you may some day, repost some of your other pieces which you bought from the Margit Nilsen estate, mind boggling to see this !!~

      It was hard to bring back the faded lettering from one of the most beautiful adwork that I have ever seen.
    4. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      Thank you Rose so appreciated xo
    5. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      Many thank you's Phil as you can see the color of her dress when I sent you photo in black and white, I did not add the true color of her dress . I always appreciate your interest in Margit Nilsen and you have supported me in my collecting all these years . Someday I will post more but due to my photo's showing up on other sites I deleted them all but may put one up now and then :-) Love xo

      Truly amazing Manikin!!! Have not seen anything like this before!!
    8. racer4four racer4four, 6 years ago
      Wow Mani, this must be a joy for you to own. She is beautiful and the ad is wonderful. I am sure Phil enjoyed doing this for you; great job he did too.
      I know you have an exceptional collection of Margit Nelson; this has found it 's best home.
    9. jscott0363 jscott0363, 6 years ago

      How very cool is this! All original and Phil did a great job as usual doing the photo work!!!

      I have a doll I'd love your opinion on, well there are two. I'll post them now since you're on. I hope I can get it done quickly!

    22. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      Thank you Share :-) And I think you should start collecting dolls !
    23. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago

    24. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 6 years ago
      hahaha not gonna happen any time soon...or later either! But then again, you know what is said...never say never!
    25. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 6 years ago
      You are right about that! I know they are valuable. But wow, you bought a home! That's cool. I wonder how much that lady made or her kids made when they sold her collection...the one that scared me, I must have been 9, maybe younger. I remember one that was what I know now to be crazed. It had a lot of crazing on it! I remember wondering why she would keep a doll that was all cracked up like that. Then I saw others in what I thought was worse condition. I actually would love to see it today just for curiosity sake. I know now it was very valuable.
    26. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      Some dolls have very little value share and unless that composition doll was one of a few that are worth restoring not a good investment doll. French Bisque dolls are high on list of investment type dolls.,rare hairstyle China dolls and Mint dolls from 50's and 60's can command a big price tag . All dolls are not equal :-)

      niquin--please read my notice...postcardcollector can be reached at maybe someone has a clue why I cannot post??? (near 3 weeks-and no reply from CW) Anyone wanting to write me is welcome..Thanks!!,Lois
    30. PostCardCollector PostCardCollector, 6 years ago
      I can do everything EXCEPT load photos It perpetually states "You can add up to 4 photos"--Nothing to click to get the photo loading option up. Dead zone. Every other functions works on the post page, title, description, category, all but the ability to post my pictures. All my old posts are up and running. I am posting on eBay as usual--no problem. Very odd that no one there answers my 3 emails about this problem....Thanks a million for contacting me. I have tried everything. Cheers, Lois in AZ postcardcollector.
    31. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      PCC Try loading a photo you have put up before . Sometimes I get that glitch and think photo did not load then when I go to add it again I get message wait till other upload is finished . Have you changed size on your photo's ?
    32. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      PCC switch your broswer and try . Not sure which one your using but try a different one ok
    33. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      If your having same issue but it also has affected your ebay photo's bobby that says for sure it is not a CW problem . Have you tried switching browsers bobby ?
    34. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      You would need google chrome installed on PC and choose it as default browser to try it , When you press your go to the internet icon it will automatically use same browser unless you change it .
    35. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      msm is not a browser it is a homepage . What is the icon you click on to go to internet look like bobby ?
    36. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      Try Internet explorer not google chrome Bobby
    37. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      I don't want you to mess anything up either :-) If you have google chrome you click on a orange circle if you have internet explorer it is a blue E you click on that is all you have to do to switch .
    38. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      Thank you Nicefice glad you see you stop :-)
      valentino97 always appreciated to have to stop :-)
