Another subject research (for a new collection) turned up this wonderful 1930’s dress form on Ebay and was listed, ‘in mint condition.’ And in my size! And just so happened, to be located a mere 30 minutes away to boot. So, in my true to low sales resistance form, I thought . . . just because, this big sister would fit right in at the Joy Studio. Yep, I think so, right? Only thing missing, the finial on top.
Typically I (try to) stay away from such tempting treasures however, the on line research tool usually gets me as did this, one previously owned, dress form. She may have to make herself useful around the place, although I’m not quite sure just how yet. Perhaps as the artist’s model? Hmmmn, wonder if she does ironing.BTW – My thought to be size, in the 1930’s does not seem to coinside with my new friend!
A welcome addition indeed. She’s perfectly fitting for the room (pun intended)! Perhaps she needs an apron?
That one would have been hard for me to resist. I’ve always wanted an old dress form…I’m still looking and waiting for the right one to come along.
I went to a wedding recently and they had a country themed wedding on the farm 🙂 it was beautiful , anyway the card holder was a wire dress form with wildflowers flowers and burlp. i though it was sooo neat to re use it for such a purpose…..they are so beutiful and vintage
