Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
This 1980's decoupage mannequin is made from fibreglass and covered in original prints and text from a the French women's magazine Petit Echo de la Mode. Le Petit Echo de la Mode is an iconic French Magazine which provided the women of France with fashion, beauty, home and personal advice from the 1880's to the mid 20th century.The magazines used on this mannequin date from May 1939 to December 1951. The fashions are iconic but the adverts also reflect the spirit of the age with Marcel waves, exercise and weight loss being constant themes.Because these mannequins are covered with original images each one is unique. The decoupage work is coated with 5 layers of varnish to protect the images from sunlight, water and general wear and tear. These pieces are effective as sculptural pieces in any room but are great in bedrooms for displaying clothes and accessories whilst keeping them neat and tidy. They are also excellent in a retail environment.This vintage mannequin measures 34" x 24" x 33" (86cm x 58cm x 84cm) and is 71cm tall. There are fixings in the base should you ever want to put her on a stand but she is sturdy and well balanced enough to sit on a table or dressing table.
