This is an absolutely striking piece - just looking at it you can envision a dressmaker working on this form to make beautiful clothing. What an interesting piece to display and what a conversation piece items of this vintage (late 1800s) are normally only found in museums. This woman's form has a hard board body with a light mauve knit cloth cover from the waist up. It stands on a metal base that adjusts. Everything on this mannequin is adjustable by wing nuts inside the shell and the height is also adjustable.
Condition is consistent with age and use. This item is made of metal and board body.
