I am offering my "OLD GAL" for sale. You will see her in most every vintage clothing photo including men's wear. I would love to hold on to her but unfortunately I do not have the room in my apartment. She has served me well over the years. I would like to find a good home for her where she will be well cared for in her old age.
Her body is paper mache. I was told that she was the personal dress form for a designer. She is from the 1930's or early 40's. Right after I bought her someone wanted to buy her from me. If I appeared 2 minutes later I would have been out of luck! The linen tape that divides her body needs to be re-glued. Her wood stand is oak. The wood knob that was attached to the top of the stand that controlled her height cracked and came off.
Here are her measurements.....60" tall body connected to base; base 36" tall; body 34" tall; Bust 38"; Waist 31"; Hips 39". As you can she does not have a perfect figure which many of us don't, including myself, but my clothing will photograph better with my new vintage dress form who has a perfect figure. My replacement is from the 1940's and has a wire base. She is from a bridal shop that down-sized its selling space. I also sell bridal gowns. Have you seen them?
This item will be packed in 2 separate boxes. If you live in the metropolitan New York area you may pick it up from my storage facility near my home. I live in Yonkers, New York... which is the beginning of Westchester County. I am located near 2 high ways.
PLEASE NOTE: Postage will be determined after it is packed for shipping. I will use 2 boxes for USPS. Thank you.
