Hello, my name is: Paula


This is a precise REPLICA of a 1930's department store display bust that was molded directly from a vintage model. This lady displays superbly and was sculpted to be kissing, smoking, or whatever the artist who sculpted her had in mind. This model is the 30's deco version followed by a 40's version with a shorter neck and base. For whatever the original portrayal was, I think that she is very unusual and is great. With your imagination and desired props, the display potential is vast. The height is 16" and the forehead circumference is 21".

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 revised models are hand cast in very durable and nontoxic resins produced by Smooth-On, Inc. of Pennsylvania.  The skin is formed by casting three layers of varying translucency. The first layer is very translucent, the second layer is less transparent, and the third layer is basically opaque. This process results in a realistic "skin" depth. Features are airbrushed (as were the original models) with an automobile detail paint and finished with a durable clear sealant.  Colors are hand mixed to duplicate those found on original American and European vintage shop displays.

"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).  The photos are of the exact mannequin that is being offered.
