Hello, my name is: Cari

 

This is a REPLICA of a 1950 store display bust that was molded directly from an original vintage model. This lady displays jewelry and hats superbly. The casting is highly detailed and is very "50's" stylish. The height is 16", the forehead circumference 20.5" and shoulder width 13". The ears will accommodate post-type, French style and most clip-on type earrings. Apparel and jewelry are for display only and not included in the sale.

The primary objective of Decoeyes is to duplicate a historically correct hat and jewelry shop display mannequin true to the golden era of mannequin production (the 1920's through the 1950's).  We work very hard to create a model that closely resembles a new, mint-in-the-box original display from this era.  "Old School" techniques are utilized and no compromises are accepted solely for the purpose of reducing material costs or saving time of labor.

Our models are cast in the best USA manufactured resins available.  Each is cast, hand-finished, and hand-painted in our shop.  We have made changes over the years and each change was made to improve our productů..never to save money or time. These fantastic vintage models were originally produced for the purpose of store displays and were never intended for public consumption.  The originals show the marks of handwork and ours impart the same hand-made "flaws"......they are not perfect, each is totally hand-made and exhibits "old school" techniques. 

"There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man's lawful prey!" John Ruskin (1819-1900).
