Have you seen her?

Isn't this a most wonderful mannequin? She is on auction right now, if I had the space to display her I would seriously consider purchasing her. She's not the Jantzen Diving Girl but she is a close resemblance.

This Jantzen Diving Girl was once on display at the Jantzen building in Portland Oregon. She is now on display at PGE Park. There were six of these figures produced in 1959 by a Los Angeles mannequin company for Jantzen.

This Jantzen diving girl sign has been at Stamie's Smart Beach Wear in Daytona Beach since 1965.

Fun hum?

Wow... she's pretty cool! And has a nicely rendered face.

I agree! Just put a different swim cap on her that isn't damaged and you're good to go. She has a very 50's face going on!

She is so perfect for you!
She would be a tax deductable business expense!

But where would I put her, she is amazing!
