Vintage mid century tailors mannequin in half life size 42, E Girard Paris
This lovely little half scale tailors mannequin would have been used for creating clothing in half size in order to save fabric. It is made by the well known company E Girard of Paris.
The bust size is 39cm, waist size 28cm and hips 44cm. It stands 63cm tall. This is a scaled down vintage size 42. I believe it dates 1950s/1960s
These rare, small mannequins are now more often used as a decorative object and are highly sought after by collectors as they were not made in the same quantity as the larger versions.
The woodwork is in good original condition and is in a light shade. The cream cotton fabric is in good order with no tears or holes. There is however evidence of pins leaving rust spots. These are visible in the photographs.
The mannequin can be dismantled for shipping. The base has a screw thread mechanism to attach it to the buste section.
