I've devised a checklist, and an item must satisfy at least one criteria. These include:
- Is it for a collection?
- Is it a present for somebody else?
- Can I live without it?
- Do I need it for a particular purpose?
I had a peek under the new fabric and could see the original linen underneath. The previous owner had glued the new fabric quite randomly in places, but the front came away well; the back is a bit of a shamozzle but not too bad in the long run. Some 'artist' had drawn a couple of nipples on the poor dear and I can only imagine the original drawing under the now scribbled black rectangle.
I am sure the No. 16 is original to the mannequin as the number also appears on the wooden stand. The stand looks deco, so I imagine it to be from the 40's.
Have a lovely week, enjoy Valentines and I will be back with a few photos of our day trip to the sea, and more of caravan #2, Tam x
