French Puppet (ROFA) 1950s Mannequin Girl (Curio)
The item for sale is a rare 1950s life size French ROFA mannequin girl, which has been converted into a moving puppet. This item is weird and in its own right quite special and decorative. The mannequin has glass eyes is hand painted and plaster / resin in form. It has synthetic blond hair and is held together with copper metal wire and paper covered string. The item hangs perfectly and is supported by a handmade X shaped puppet handle, the item is fully movable however the hand and head movement is more focused and predominant once handled. The item is a complete original and sort after mannequin french maker. This item is a one off and from my private collection of curio item from my store at spitalfield antique market in London. It’s scary, weird, curio, creepy, decorative and quite simply spooky which is why it’s so cool.
Size of shade: L 53” x W 16” x D 13”
