"No Wire Coat Hangers!"

Circa 1920s wooden children's clothes hangers. Joan Crawford would have approved! 

M Y   CO L L E C T I O N — I really adore the painted faces on these hangers and the muted "baby" colors used to denote the boy's and girl's. There were no young boys in my family during the 1920s or the 1930s. I'm guessing this was a set, and most likely a baby gift for my aunt Hoohoo, nee Gloria Isabel, born in 1925.


  1. I had plastic hangers as a child -- they were nice colors and had little ducks on them. Sadly, they weren't all that durable!
