Circa 1880-1900 French Mannequin. The entire head and neck are made from a hard wax, the eyes are glass, and the hair is human to the best we can determine. When we were trying to determine her age, we went under the assumption that the shoes are original, and a local expert dated the shoes from the late 1800s, and I must admit that we are not experts in woman's clothing. Arms are articulated and the general quality of construction is quite high, so we are assuming that this may have been used in a high end department store, but that is only a hypothesis.
Condition: Appears to have had some restoration over the years.
