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 .
