Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
She is marked with US Patent No. D159,005. This was issued in 1950 (applied for in 1949) to R.I. Sanger, NYC, NY.
Overall she is in very good vintage condition with some paint loss here and there and some small gouges to the wood. Her stone base is has two large chips, but she can still stand and is perfectly stable. The chips are fortunately in the back, though there is a crack visible in the front. I would not recommend her as a napkin holder for daily use, as it is fairly tedious to insert the napkins into the grooves. For display purposes however, she looks great with her napkin dress. I also think she's fabulous as a bangle holder but I'm sure there are plenty of other creative uses for her as well. She's pretty terrific all on her own too!
