Vintage Wire Dress Forms and Mannequins



https://amybarickman.com/blog

I just learned that this particular old wire dress form is the one that inspired the structure of the Statue of Liberty. I just had to begin the post with this information because I found it so fascinating.
I don't think I'm the only one with a fascination for the vintage dress forms. In searching websites I found a variety of shapes, as well as a variety of ideas utilizing these wonderful pieces of history.

I've managed over the years to acquire quite a few items I knew I would treasure, but so far I haven't found a dress form that I can afford. (That is such a stumbling block for satifying all my wants. LOL)

Here are a few that I thought were worth showing you:

Vintage JR Bauman dress form 1945

There are so many fun and beautiful ways to use vintage items in your home.  I like to create a grouping of items of various sizes and textures that enhance each other.  At one time I did the window displays for a store that had crafted and vintage items.  These groupings were a main focal point in each display.  Try creating one on a table, dresser, shelf, or mantel in your home, I know you'll love it.

WooHoo, I love these!

I probably should not admit it because Pepper wants one but we have sold a few mannequins...old ones and a relatively new one from France...

I would love to keep one some day too :)

The wire ones almost look medieval, but how fun!

However, merely raising the time to 45 or 60 minutes of exercise two or three times each week will produce far more bodyweight reduction than preserving all walks at 30 minutes.
