Love, love, love her!Great find. I have been looking for one just like that! Hopefully someday I will find one. Enjoy! amy




Well done! Yes that number does mean she was manufactured in 1927. My first instinct was a Wolf Form. But the "S.M." probably means it's from the Superior Model Form Company. It's is probably one of the earliest models they made!


She's FAB! And I found on last weekend too. Mannies coming out of hibernation?


YOWSERS Gina....You must be OVER THE MOON HAPPY with your LOVELY lady....CONGRATULATIONS on your MAGNIFICENT find....!!!!!

Cheers from Oz,

She's lovely Gina. Aren't SM her initials though? How about Sophia Margherita?
Happy Mother's Day! :)

Remember, a size 14 many years ago did not mean the same thing as a size 14 today -- originally, women's dress sizes were 12, 14, 16, 18 -- I have a McCall pattern from 1947 and a size 14 was a 34" bust, 26 1/2" waist, and 35" hip (which today would be more like a size 6) Women's sizes have been going down, and it is for pure vanity -- somehow a smaller size (even for the same measurements as the larger size number) seems flattering. It's all just numbers!


Great find. As a knitter I've always wanted one of those. Very cool. And I see her peeking out the window at Halloween already...


OH Gina...she is just beautiful! Wonderful find!!


I loved that! Glad you procured her, she looks great in the VJIMT Home.
