A magnifique french antique decoupage mannequin in lovely antique condition circa 1900 complete with original stand and brass collar. The early mannequins were made of papier mache and are incredibly robust. This one has had early magazine pictures pasted onto it and has been superbly done.A real work of art and thoroughly unusual. Underneath the montage the mannequin is in pretty much perfect condition having no indents or cracks. Not quite a wasp wasted mannequin but certainly more shapely than many.
The wooden stand has evidence of woodworm but i have personally treated it twice to make sure none of the little blighters are still in there. The stand is strong and has no signs of cracks nor any movement. The central pole that runs through the body has been replaced although this part isnt visible.
Fantastic shop display or purely as a stand alone decorative antique. More photos available on demand.
Full height from top to bottom is 152cm (60). Weight less than 5 kilos. This item is made of wood and papier mache, brass.
