This lovely lady is an original 1920's wax bust made by the sought after maker Pierre Imans. She has wax moulded bobbed hair so she is one of his later models dating to the late 1920's. She has darkened slightly with age and there is a crack shown in the pictures to one of her shoulders although this is stable and she is still good and strong. She has the makers mark printed to her hollow torso. She does have some inevitable wear to her hair and in general but is still in very good vintage condition for a 90 plus year old. Pierre Imans was working in Paris during the first years of the 20th century and producing these beautiful and life like mannequins. These busts look wonderful dressed for display or used in vintage shops to display wigs or hats and jewellery. Please note that the lace top is included in the sale but the pink hat is not included.
