An amazing late 40's model!!!!!!
She's not in mint condition, but I would say in very good condition, and will need a good cleaning, but it's so rare to find this kind of mannequins, they are so fragile because they are made of plaster. You can find sometime some busts or heads but complete "full lenght" ones so hard to find! The only one for sale I have ever seen was really expensive, it was about 10 years ago and I was still a student so I missed it.
She is from the brand "Siegel" made in Alsace (north east of FRANCE), this brand still exists now but associated with another famous brand "Stockman"... Her eyes are so beautiful,they are green and made of glass. I dream and imagine her in the 40's in a window display!
Let's dream a bit together...
But these one is now at my home... I must think about a name for her... She was the biggest purchase of the day but not the only one!!!
A seller GIVE me 3 hats from the 30's for FREE!!!
I find some vintage belts and my husband fell in love with this little dancer paint and I found a lot of 40's-50's costume jewelery!
I also find a cute white 50's bag.
We have definitively not the same clothes size so I will have to buy some cute 40's dresses for her, she cannot stay naked like these. Another good reason to buy more vintage!!!!
What do you think about my finds?
What would be a cute name for her : Suzie, Capucine...???
