This genuine 1880s french wasp waist manniquin is covered in its original black cotton with a wonderfully exagerated waist and bustle bottom. She is worn which is typical with her age but this adds to her beauty. This manniquin would have originated from a couture house in france. She has a height adjustable base with a brass tightening ring. The brass decorative ball to the top was most likely a later addition but looks beautiful next to the dark wood and brown of the original cloth. Dimensions: 114cm height at lowest adjustable / 159cm height at highest adjustable / 30cm depth at base of body / 33cm width at base of body / 16cm width at waist / 32cm width at shoulder. The item being vintage or antique, it might have small imperfections due to the wear of time, which doesn't alter its beauty or solidity. This item is made of papier mache and cotton, wood, pine, brass.
