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. The name of this mannequin head is Mira. This is an exact quote from Decoeyes original description of “Magic” Mira. This is a precise REPLICA of a 1930’s department store display bust that was molded directly from a vintage model. This lady has a unique Art Deco appearance and will add a period radiance to any setting. She is 19 1/2″ tall, has a forehead circumference of approximately 20 1/2″ and a shoulder width of 14. Apparel (jewelry, hat, wrap) and stand are for display and not included in the final sale. This model was cast in a composite resin (a blend of resin + powdered porcelain) that is nontoxic, very durable, and accepts paint beautifully. The paint technique, style and colors are accurate to the vintage models of this era and looks very much as a brand new 1930’s model would have appeared. This model was made to be a “working girl” with maximum durability. There is a 1 1/4 spout opening on the bottom that may be utilized safely with a stand on a dowel rod. My wife and myself do all the work from molding the original vintage model to the final detailing. Mira has red hair, beautiful hand painted lavender eyes, and lovely makeup. 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! Condition: Please use the photos as part of the description. On the left side of the base, there is a darker color paint. You can see it in the photos. Otherwise, she is in great condition.
