Vintage 1890s German Wasp Waisted Mannequin

Isn't she gorgeous!!!



This beautiful German wasp waisted mannequin dates from the 1890s and has the most gorgeous chocolate brown cover. The stunning turned tripod base is larger than normal creating a beautifully proportioned mannequin. She is definately German as I can just make out some German words on the underneath wooden board.

She is quite a petite little lady but what a figure....wasp wasited, amble bosom amd what a bottom!
I'm very much attached to this mannequin. She is so adorable.
I have to admit that I don't know very much about German mannequins so I shall have to look into them in more detail. Its a pity I can't make out the makers name. Ah well...it will give me an excuse to surf the net.....as if I needed one!
Hope you are all well, Lucyxx

Lucy, she is sooo gorgeous. Probably one of the nicest I've ever seen, and I've had a few! Are you going to keep her? There's one particular mannequin I let go which I still regret parting with! The name of the game, I suppose!

Hi Angie & Sue, She is lovely and I would love to keep her but I have made a promise to my husband that I will only keep three for myself. I have a wasp waisted Stockman in perfect condition, a miniture tabletop and a child mannequin (with a waspish waist would you believe!). I suppose the tabletop mannequin doesn't count really so maybe I could risk keeping one more!! Lucyxx
