Handsome female mannequin full body dress form number 1986 12 on a rolling cast iron base by Wolfform Co. This Judy is in great vintage condition with a nice age patina for display. The linen covering does have some stains and a tear but, in our opinion, just adds to her mystique. One caster has been replaced and the cast iron stand has a nice peeling and chipped paint patina one can only achieve with age. Mannequin is considered the Cadillac of dress forms in the fashion industry. A full-bodied female, aka Judy, manufactured in 1986 in a size 12, this garment fitting form is sought after for its high-quality construction and the Wolfform Companys attention to detail. A dress form from Wolform gets its perfect shape from a sturdy papier-mache core made from molds. The cores are then padded with cotton and covered with a cream-colored Irish linen. It is placed on an adjustable metal rod and hangs from a curved steel pole attached to a cast iron base with casters for ease of movement. This model has a single removable leg. Now that is all information you need if you intend to use the dress form for its intended purpose as a fashion form for creating haute couture clothing. But if your intention is to use this marvelous piece as a wonderful sculptural work of art, then you will want to know that it has the most intriguing shape and natural age patina to the steel and cast iron and Irish linen. She will make an incredible conversation piece in any room just as she is, but I visualize her wearing an outstanding vintage piece of apparel, an antique kimono, or maybe just a luxurious long strand of pearls! The Wolfform Company is located in Englewood, New Jersey and has been producing garment fitting forms since the early 1900s. They produce male and childrens forms as well as the female shape. Their process and best available materials have stayed relatively the same in over 100 years. But their female form has had to undergo many evolutions in shape and size as each new look became a fashion trend. Suppliers of primarily fashion designers, manufacturers, and fashion schools throughout the world their forms are sought after as the premier fashion form. In my research I discovered they briefly closed their doors early in the 21. Century, but through high demand of their quality product are back in full swing. My imagination has gone crazy with the wonderful displays and vignettes that could be obtained using this unique Judy, as the female mannequin is sometimes called. You need to make her yours and let your imagination soar! O/A Height on Stand 75 Inches. O/A Width 17 Inches. O/A Depth 18 Inches. Mannequin Form Size Only 60H x 17W x 10D Inches. Weight 57.9 Pounds.
