Description

 
I love these British made Chil-Daw tailors mannequins - they are so elegant! These mannequins were made in the 1950s and intended for practical use. They are so well made that many of them are still in use today - but not in this wonderful condition. The fabric is usualy stained and torn. Not so with this lady - she is by far the best condition of this make of mannequin I have come across - and I have seen lots! The fabric is very clean (I can't find any marks at all) and all the dials turn freely. The original stand has the normal scuffs expected from a lady of this age. The great thing about this mannequin is that she can be used for dressmaking purposes and when not in use makes a beautiful display item - unlike the flimsy and unattractive modern adjustable mannequins of today.
 
Measurements: bust - 34 - 41 inches, waist -   25 - 32 inches, hips -  38 - 45 inches, height (from the top of the finial to the floor) -  170 cm (the mannequin can be lowered and made taller from this height)
