Description

 
This lovely petite wasp waist mannequin came to me with her fabric covering in a terrible state, so I have decoupaged her in original coloured pictures from French newspapers dating from the 1890s. This is a rather theatrical mannequin, as all the pictures I have used depict operatic scenes. The stunning lady on the front, dressed in her opera costume, was on the front page of one of the newspapers. She must have been famous in her time - I have included her name under the picture in case anyone would like to investigate who she was!
 
The mannequin is completely original, from the adjustable stand to the finial and the original metal turnkey has the Stockman Paris markings on it.

Bust:  32 inches
