Hello, my name is: Kate


This is a precise replica of a 1930's store display mannequin head and was made directly from a mint condition original model. She has an almost magical 30's appearance and is unsurpassed in reflecting this golden era. She is 15 1/2" tall and has a 21 3/4" forehead circumference. Apparel is 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. 

This particular "kate" is a prototype.  The finish was done by stippling with a fusion paint over the skin color.  This technique resulted in many small dots that give the illusion of skin pores and a very natural finish (may be seen in the last photo). This finish will photograph exceptionally well.

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.
