Pierre Imans Wax Head

Extremely rare life size antique Pierre Imans of Paris wax mannequin head, with real blond hair, glass eyes and porcelain teeth. Dating from circa 1920, this piece is in unrestored condition, with some slight damage to the backs of the ears, but this doesn't detract from its beauty. Makers' mark and model number stamped to the back of the neck. Imans was renowned for producing life-like mannequins (although he banished this word from his promotional vocabulary - he considered himself a sculptor & ceroplastician). In the early 1920s he moved away from the wax figures as they were fragile.
