My mannequin heads were made by Decoeyes (Jerry & Susie) in the U. Since Jerrys mannequin heads were so well made, I found them to be completely addictive and I have a lot of them. I will be listing them whenever I can, but this will take time. I used them mainly for photography and many are like new but others have sustained some bumps and bruises, which I will describe to the best of my ability and include in the pictures. These were made of some sort of resin and are nearly unbreakable. There were ones that were cast in what he called Waxi-Cast and I believe I can point those out, as they have a darker complexion than the rest. They were all cast from original mannequin heads of the period and all work was done by hand, including painting and casting. I actually have the same one that is old and one that is new (Ivy), and I treasure them both as you can really see how he made his mannequins so very well. She stands approximately 14 ½ tall and has a forehead circumference of approximately 19 3/8. She is one of the ones that has sustained some bumps and bruises, but not bad at all. The worst that I can see are two nicks in the paint just above her right ear (as you are looking at the picture). There are also a couple of small marks on the same side on her base. Other than that, she may have a few specks that are so small, I missed them. I believe she is one that has been cast in Waxi-Cast, as her complexion is a bit darker than the others I have. She also has tiny holes in her earlobes for displaying post earrings–I’m not sure these will work for your earrings, as they are very small. She has brown hair, hand painted light green eyes, and great make-up. Please look at the pictures, as they are part of the description. She is marked one the bottom: Decoeyes, 1-17-4 and Alice followed by the number 8. The following was one of Decoeyes favorite quotes (and I can see why). 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! Decoeyes mannequins are the ONLY ones I know of that are EXACT reproductions of vintage ones. It’s nice to have one of the old ones but they invariably have chips, cracks, have been repainted (sometimes very crudely), and who knows what? And most are made of plaster, which isn’t nearly as durable as the resin that was used by Decoeyes. Im sure you will love this mannequin head, as I did for so many years!
