This is a wonderful plaster or chalk hand painted 1920s or 1930s mannequin head of a movie star. I think it is Dorothy Lamour or Bette Davis possibly. The head is 14" by 8" by 7 1/2 and it has beautiful hand painted features. I see a 1/8" small hole on left temple and a shallow 1" flake on right temple. Also a few paint flakes.
It has a hole in the base probably for a stand. I have not cleaned it as it is fresh from a wonderful estate. The item "RARE VINTAGE ART DECO HP MOVIE STAR STORE DISPLAY LADY CHALK MANNEQUIN HEAD" is in sale since Sunday, January 22, 2017.
