THESE ANTIQUE, C. 1930 HAND-PAINTED MANNEQUIN HEADS of children are rare examples of the advertising display arts. Made originally from molds, they are quite fragile, therefore many of these never made it to see the next century like these. Often, heads like these had wigs applied to them. These “made in USA” display heads are priced at around $375 each at Voila Gallery, through 1st dibs.
