1880s French Victorian wasp-waist mannequin (42in)

Product Description

Beautifully aged antique French mannequin sourced from the Loire Valley region. Mannequins from this era are difficult to find.

This wasp waist mannequin is from one of the coutre houses of France and was used to display the latest fashions in boutique shop windows. The tiny nipped waist shows how much pain ladies in this era went through to follow the latest fashion!

The height is adjustable via the central pole and brass tightening ring and stands from 150cm tall to 175cm at maximum extension.

This mannequin is in great condition considering her 140 years age, she has been well-used over its life and wear to the black linen cover gives it a great patina in places, notably on the side and one shoulder you can see the original French newspaper used in the papier-mache construction. A patch on the bust shows a previous repair and holes on the shoulder joints show that this mannequin may have had arms at one point.
