Vintage~1945 Latexture Mannequin "fashiondol"~with Simplicity Miniature Fashions:
~~I'll be listing quite a few antique and vintage toys, dolls and play sets over the next several months, many of them still new in the original box, stored by a collector for decades~~ ~~I'll be glad to combine sales andwork with you regarding shipping costs, etc.~~ ~~Please contact me with any questions you may have and I'll answer back promptly...~~ ~~ Thank you very This is a nice vintage mannequin sewing set, manufactured in 1945 by Latexture Products, Inc., New York. It has patterns for the mannequin by Simplicity and a book that says "Sewing Book for Fashiondol Miniature Fashions". This set has never been used and the patterns are all present and uncut. This set is a really interesting example of these old mannequin sets, and is very large...measuring almost 20" x 16". The doll herself measures approx. 15 1/2" tall. Now, although this set was never used at all, and the patterns uncut as well as all the accessories, it's almost 70 years old and shows it. There's some crazing on the mannequin and dress form...and the patterns have yellowed and approx. 1" on the bottom of two have apparently dried over the years and crumbled off...these effects of aging can be seen in the photos...The box also, shows decades of shelf ware and discoloration.. a cardboard side is also not attached...but the rest is intact ...the dress form, accessories, stand, etc. are all original and never used. Despite it's aging flaws, and considering it survived almost seven decades, this is a great old, interesting collectible...
