From La Rosa (Italian mannequin makers... I hate to think how much they would cost...)
I like the look a lot - curious how they would fair with clothing on though, they seem very long in proportion/limbs.
They are fantastic !, you should add these to your 'if I had a million dollars' wish list Jonathon!
I love them. I have been thinking about getting a dress form with flexible arms but if they had them with those stylish heads I would be sold for sure!
They're beautiful just as they are - to clothe them would diminish them I think, which is an interesting situation for a mannequin.
I think of the Theatre de la Mode mannequins when I look at them...
The face reminds me a little of the pre-cursor to the Barbie doll, the German Bild Lilli Doll.
The whole website is a treat to view.
Beautiful. The one on the right has a look of Merle Oberon.
Wow, they are works of art! I first thought of my Valia doll .
I so agree. They are fantastic. Buy them as mannequins, but never use them as mannequins! I have a 1986 Susanna Linsmayer mannequin by Adel Rootstein that I never use as such. She decorates a corner of the breakfast lounge!
Wow, she's fantastic!
The wire construction reminds me of a collection at the Maryhill Museum.
