Description

 
A stunning and rare example of a petite German Wasp Waist mannequin dating to around 1870.  She has brown fabric covering the torso which is in excellent condition, with only some fraying to the base, some faded water marks and punctures to the top of the fabric at the neck. It is the stand which sets this mannequin apart from others of her type. It is beautifully detailed and turned and is a feature in its own right. There are some old worm holes in places, but they are very old and no longer an issue. The torso can be heightened by way of the original metal key at the top of the stand. A piece of wood is missing at the top of the stand, as shown in the pictures, but does not affect the adjustment in any way. The left arm cap has a small split. The finial is a replacement, but has been hand made in the exact style of the original. All other parts of the mannequin are original.
 
Measurements:
  
bust: 37  inches
waist:  25 inches
hips:  41 inches
height from top of finial to floor: 144 cm (the stand is height adjustable, so she can be made taller than this)
