Description

 
This gorgeous wasp waisted mannequin dates to around 1880 and is in very good condition given her long life. She is covered in brown linen, which is is superb condition given her age. It has some minor marks, which I have tried to show in the pictures. The seam work is amazing and all intact, drawing attention to her tiny waist (21 inches). She has lost her original stand and so she comes with a replacement stand in the exact style of the original. All other parts of the mannequin are original. She cannot be adjusted in height, but stands to a perfecr height anyway. There are a few old worm holes to the arm caps.
 
What sets this lady apart from others of her age though are her tiny measurements and generous hip measurement to accomodate that bustle!
The measurements are as follows:
 
Bust: 34 inches, Waist: 21 inches, hips: 41 inches
Height (from the top of the finial to the floor): 153 cm.
