A coat hanger! I think of a commercial nature. Possibly from the 1930s????

From the Sarah Carter Collection, Old Gippstown, Moe, Victoria.

She is just lovely. I find more and more that 'new and improved' is not all it's cracked up to be!

I love her! I'd never have guessed she was a hanger. I was thinking an art deco doll. What fun it would be to make one of these.

*@$#% blogger!!! just lost my comment when I signed in...
was trying to say that she looks like she was styled after the Italian press moulded boudoir dolls that were popular in the flapper era, nice that she has survived so well
You must be having such a good time in your museum, wish I could join you!

You won't believe this but I am into coat hangers at the moment too. We have a marvelous collection at the op shop where I work. Nothing like yours though.

She is so beautiful and those eyes are so 'modern'. A very clear photo and I never thought she could be a coat hanger.
