Hello, my name is: Mae
This is a precise REPLICA of a 1930's department store display bust that was molded directly from a vintage model. This style precedes the "glamour girls" of the forties and is a great example of the Art Deco era. I think that this is one of the finest deco mannequin heads that I have seen and has a very dramatic period look with great detail. This model is 16 1/4" in height and has a forehead circumference of 21 1/2". Apparel is not included in the sale. The molds, castings and all painting and detail is done in our workshop. My wife and I are the only ones involved in the direct production and all the work from the original model to the completed mannequin is done in our shop.
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.
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.
