This listing is for a vintage mannequin head bust. We believe that this piece may be french, it is only marked 85. Based on her style, we believe she is probably from around the 1940s or so. We think that he mannequin bust is made out of plaster and/or composite.
She has brown hair and eyes. The lovely statue measures approximately 7 inches by 8 inches by 14-1/4 inches tall. The mannequin is in great vintage condition, however there are a few small chips, as shown in the photos.There are spots of paint loss or wear, as well as flaws in the glazing. It would benefit from a deeper cleaning, but we leave that to the new owner. We just did a quick wipe down of the piece. Please be sure to see all photos for details. -------------------------- xxx --------------------------- xxx -------------------------.

The style is retro and kitsch.
