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 an original 1950's mannequin, made from solid fibreglass. It has been covered in original pieces from editions of Le 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 the late 1940's to 1956. The fashions and illustrations are very nostalgic of the times and the snippets of adverts and articles reflect many of women's concerns of the time.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 is 71cm tall and comes with a reproduction wood and chrome base which allows you to adjust the height. The mannequin itself is a genuine 1950's display item with solid neck and base. If you wanted to use it as a tabletop display piece, a chrome and acrylic stand is also available.
