Vintage Blonde Handmade Plaster Lady Head Attached Hat -Display

Description:
I believe this lovely plaster lady head to be from the 30's or thereabouts, and to be a handmade item. I have seen similar lady heads used as hat displays, but her hat is firmly attached, so I am unsure what her original purpose was - other than to look utterly fabulous of course. She does, as I mentioned above have a homemade quality to her. I think she is plaster, and her features are charmingly painted. She has an almost unruly mass of golden threads for hair, crowned with a cute hat of "grapes" and leaves which are firmly and permanently attached to her head. I think she would make an excellent display for a vintage store, or perhaps a fashion muse for collectors of vintage and unusual items. She has some wear that has accumulated over the years including some scuffs (especially to the interior) and crazing. Measures about 11.5" tall including her hat.
