    Manikin
    (60 items)

    This is a 1940s 28 inch advertising store counter top Manikin /mannequin, She was sculpted and sold by Margit Nilsen for the McCall pattern company . You could buy a small manikin pattern which was also sold in full adult size. She would wear the miniature version saving material due to WWII shortage of fabric .
    She is wearing a dress made from a Simplicity pattern which would never have been allowed in McCall section of store.
    Margit Nilsen is probably the most famous designer of these smaller mannequins and she has quite a history and sculpted
    so many different manikins and often people will attribute one to her when not marked or on a Margit stand, but there were several other companies producing these also . Her's being the most sought after.

    I hope you all have a nice summer in USA and to my friends that are in winter now I want you to know it is 100 degree's here ! to hot .

      Nice one Mani!! She's very lifelike! It's been cooler here in Kentucky than it's been up north, which is crazy! Stay cool up there.

      Hope you are on slow bake, as it looks as if this year might be a long cook. You know so much about Margit and I learned a lot from you about her. I had not seen this beauty before, and her dress still looks new !~

      Thank you Phil, I studied Margit Nilsen for may years but now is time to hand the torch to someone else. I always appreciate the support and encouragement you have given me . I now know more about Sherman from you and had never heard of it until you started sharing you fantastic collection and knowledge. xo
