Product Description

A wonderful female mannequin…

Although we are unsure of the actual age of this piece, we would suggest given that it dates to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1940s. We understand that this piece used to form part of a shop window display in a haberdashery store. We must tell you that this piece has a superb patina, one that shows charm and authenticity and is nice on the eye!

Structurally the piece is in good shape; made with a ‘hardened’ cardboard mould, and then covered in a layer of papier mache. The original paint work has faded and cracked, suggesting the sun may have got to this piece over the years. For us, this has left a desirable look and an item that one could enjoy in their home on display. You certainly cannot make a finish like this…

It’s lightweight and as pictured, one could simply place the mannequin over a stand or fixture to display it. It’s a charming item…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The mannequin although structurally great has some surface scars and abrasions, with paint loss, tatty areas and a general weathered look and feel. The are a few surface bumps and dents, but we don’t feel that they impact the overall look and feel. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Please note : The metal stand or stool are not included within this listing
