Hello, my name is: Lily
This is a precise replica of a 1940's store display mannequin head and was made directly from an original model. She has great hair and very soft facial features......absolutely beautiful. The model is 15" tall and has a 22" forehead circumference. Apparel is for display only and not included in the sale.
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. Our
models are cast in the best USA manufactured resins available.
Each is cast, hand-finished, and hand-painted in our shop.
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.
Please note: this particular lily model is a prototype. Her skin color and finish was an experiment in skin tone and texture. The skin paint is a polyurethane that bonds to the resin model and was applied as a stipple with texture to resemble "real" skin. The result is a one-of-a-kind model that has a very realistic skin tone in a very durable medium.
