A Quirky Vintage Tailor's Mannequin or Dummy from Italy with patent expandable dimensions.

The body is made of an early moulded plastic- similar to Bakelite- set together in different expanding sections allowing the measurements of shoulders waist and hips to increase and decrease. The decorative leather strapwork holds the expanding torso together. The metal breasts are set independently of the body on a push/pull mechanism allowing increase in the bosom measurement.

The unusual dummy also has a plaque denoting clothing measurements fixed on the front of the neck and the whole body is mounted on an adjustable metal stand.

Mannequins and tailors' dummies are very much in vogue at the moment and sought after in London's shops and street markets.

Measures 62 inches tall x 19 wide. Circa 1930-1960. From Italy
