S040 - Fantastic Rare Antique French Plaster Baby Shop Mannequin / Display Dummy
This is a fantastic rare, life size antique French plaster baby, shop mannequin dating from about 1890. She would make a stunning addition to a vintage display.
The face of the mannequin is exquisitely pretty. She has red rosebud lips and beautifully hand painted brown eyes with long lustrous lashes and fine brows. Her gorgeous dark hair compliments her eyes and is painted in thick waves against her head.
She sits unaided in a typical baby position. Her adorable chubby arms and legs are jointed and will move in to different positions.
We have left her as we found her. As one would expect her paint has distressed a little but overall she has survived the years in amazing condition.
In the sitting position she measures approx :- 43 cm (17 inches) high x 24 cm (9.5 inches) wide x 30 cm (11.75 inches) deep.
A stunning rare antique baby mannequin to use to display clothes or to keep and treasure as part of a collection. Another divine brocante French find from La Belle Étoffe!
