Description

Stunning antique late Victorian era paper mache mannequin on a cast iron floor stand! It has a great room presence as you can see in the photographs and really draws the eye and shows her age.

I believe the gold paint may be a prior modification, but clearly not new, perhaps done in the 1930’s or so. She is in overall fair condition for the age, with clearly a significant amount of wear, including paint craquelure and some damage to the breast area, as shown in the closeups.

She measures 38 1/2″ tall with the stand in it’s lowest position, 68 1/2″ tall with the stand in it’s highest position and is 12″ wide and 11″ deep.
