Hello, my name is: Zoe

Available Soon!

This is a precise REPLICA of a 1930's department store display bust that was molded directly from a vintage model. It is a fantastic Art Deco display and would be great for cloche type vintage hats or as a deco period accent piece. This lady is 15" in height and has a forehead circumference of approximately 21 1/4". Apparel is for display only and not included in the auction.

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. 

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. 

"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).
