The Mystery of the Marcel Wave


This week Mystery Photo Monday brings you a fashionable lady with a sense of style. From the tips of her pointy little shoes to the top of her wavy coiffure, she's right in fashion. If only we knew her name.

Unidentified woman with a Marcel Wave and some very fine shoes. Possible connection to Dixon or Karvoius families, Elizabeth, N.J.
Right in style!
The heated curling irons required to get the hair to wave "just so" were invented in Paris in the 19th century. By the early 1920's the wonders of modern technology offered women a electric curling iron with temperature control. No more singed hair!

If you recognize this Doll, send me a note. Thanks!
