Hello, my name is: Vivian

 

Vivacious Vivian

This is a REPLICA of a 1940s store display bust that was molded directly from an original vintage model. I have collected, restored, and molded literally hundreds of vintage store display mannequins and, in my opinion, this is the prettiest of them all. She was originally sculpted to model hats and has the inherent ability to display a vast variety of hats to perfection. The forehead circumference is 21" but her head is shaped so perfectly for hats that she will accommodate a variety of sizes. The height is slightly over 15" and the shoulder width is 11". 

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).
