Hello, my name is: Ellie

 

This is a precise REPLICA of a 1920's department store display bust that was molded directly from a vintage model. I am especially fond of the era referred to as the "roaring 20's" and the original of this model would be from this time period.  She is 13 3/4" tall and has a forehead circumference of approximately 22". Apparel is for display and not included in the final 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.

The fantastic original 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).
