Product Description

A stunning and rare example of a Pierre Imans male mannequin…

Previously used as a shop display, the mannequin dates to the late 19th century. Although it is showing signs of its age, we are happy to be able to offer this beautiful piece to a new owner! Standing approximately 1.3 metres tall, the mannequin is complete in its form, with wear and tear commensurate with age

Made in both plaster and wood, the mannequin is tatty in areas, yet the fact it exists makes us happy. The head, made in plaster is removable, and the wooden arms can articulate when directed. One will not that there are some obvious cracks and losses to the plaster head, yet we do not feel this detracts from the overall look and feel. This piece would look stunning on display in one’s home, or indeed a retail environment. Given what may look tatty and fragile, the mannequin itself is actually good in its form (even with the crack to the left ankle)…

Due to its age, areas of the material on the mannequin are stained and there are signs of scuffs and rips. In general the patina is weathered, but again all in all we feel this is a beautiful piece that one could enjoy! We will happily answer any questions about the condition of this piece as it is a little difficult to highlight every imperfection or feature…

A beautiful and unusual mannequin. Great for a window display, a collector or simply for decor in one’s home…
