Antique Parisian Adjustable Chartreuse Silk Dress Form, Buste Girard, Paris
Acquired in France, this is one of the most unique dress forms I've ever seen! Never seen a silk Parisian dress form before!
Manufactured by Buste Girard, Paris. The most lovely chartreuse/mustard color. The photos don't capture the color exactly right.
This is not for the perfectionist, however. There are some areas of wear and tear, commensurate with age. A hole on the left side under the arm hole.
The form is 61" tall at its shortest, and 70" when fully extended. The measurements are 35" (bust), 27" (waist), and 36" (hips). Nice wooden base, arm holes and finial.
Marked, "Buste Girard Paris" at the base.
This would make a truly outstanding display piece. The color is just marvelous in person!
Due to its size, this item requires special shipping and handling which will be charged separately. The top is removable from the base, making it easier to ship. Please e-mail or call 415-305-7846 for a shipping quote since it varies from state-to-state. If located in the San Francisco Bay Area, arrangements can be made to pick up in person.
