Description

This stunning French vintage mannequin dates to around the start of the 1900s. She would have sat on the counter of a smart shop, displaying the latest fashions. It is very unusual to find one in such good condition as this, as they were intended to be working mannequins and the fabric almost always shows signs of long use. Whoever has owned this in the past has treasured her, as I can see no damage at all, apart from a very pale and faded water mark on the neck and two small punctures on one arm cap (pictured). The fabric is original to the mannequin and has the european size marking stamped to the back.
 
This mannequin is a Stockman make, the premier mannequin makers of France, and the height can be adjusted by way of the original turnkey under the torso. The key is embossed 'Stockman' on one side and 'Paris' on the other. The stand and finial are beautifully turned and are also in excellent condition.
 
This is a wonderful piece of history, in outstanding condition.
