Product Description

A charming, hand made WW2 pilot…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that it dates to latter part of the 20th century, onwards. Depicting a WW2 pilot or military personnel, this is a charming piece! The head (or bust) is made in papier mache, therefore it is lightweight to touch and feel. The attention to detail is brilliant, especially when the chaps’ hat is removed to reveal the receded hairline!

The military hat looks like an original piece (but we cannot be sure), and the knitted scarf has been added for effect. With all of the elements together, this creates a fabulous display piece and something that wouldn’t look out of place on display in one’s home, or of course on display in a retail setting. These particular piece could also be used as a hat stand, or for displaying wigs etc…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The head is good structurally and happily ‘free stands’ on its wooden stand. There are a few surface marks, scratches and paint chipping, yet we feel this simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
