Papier Mache Milliners Head    Papier Mache Milliners Head

Small size papier mache milliners head measuring approximately 9 1/2" tall. Used to display hats and bonnets. Hand painted. We suspect that this one was made in America by an individual store owner rather than imported from France as most of them were.  The form is quite basic, with a painted nose as opposed to a formed one, and there is no gesso finish. The base is closed off. In very good original condition. Circa 19th - early 20th century. (CK-17)
