Vintage french mannequin bust, perfect for displaying hats and scarves. This hand painted papier mache mannequin head is a true one of a kind beauty. She has been covered with a cellulose laquered finish which gives her a deep luster and gorgeous shine.She has lovely red lips and big brown eyes that are beautifully dark, expressive and heavily lashed. Running around her base is a gorgeous floral splay with various hues of color that add to her charm and interest. A wonderful work of art, she measures a full 20" tall, 10 1/2" wide and 7 deep.
She would make a great gift for a boutique owner who really appreciates authentic vintage art. She has various dark places on her bust that give her a bit of a rustic feel as well as some crazing that does not carry through to the inside, see picture 10. If she could only talk, i wonder what tales she would tell.
