Atsco "Oscar" Bakelite Mannequin, circa 1930s

About

A very rare and desirable bakelite artist mannequin, "Oscar" was made in Los Angeles in the 1930s. Most of these poseable figures are made of wood, even the current ones. It is possible that this deluxe mannequin was too costly (at $35) in the post depression era, so very few were actually produced. He is a joy to pose and play with, and the metal ball joints add a "Machine Age" or robotic feel to the figure. At 20 inches tall, he is quite impressive and can be posed in seemingly endless positions. The figure is well marked on the lower rear back and bottom. There are a couple tiny chips at the joints, but they are hardly noticeable.
