    My husband and I were opening a clothing store in a small Tennessee town. While hunting deals on displays, a friend of a friend asked if we needed a mannequin. We already had a couple but, sure, why not? She showed up with this great vintage Adel Rootstein.
    I didn't know anything about Rootstein mannequins at the time. I just knew I loved her reclining position and that she would fit perfect in the store window. She is in great condition, considering her age, which I'm not exactly sure of. I'm guessing mid 60's-70's. Her make-up is original and she even has her eye lashes.
    We've since closed our store but I still have her. I hate that she's boxed up in storage but I can't quite bring myself to give her up yet.
    If anyone can offer more information about her, or can recommend a website on vintage mannequins I'd really appreciate it. The few websites I've found don't have this reclining model.
    Also, I'm not even sure what category to list her under here, if you think there's something more appropriate, please let me know.
    Thanks for your help and comments!

      Love it. I have a little bit vintage (does that exist?) Hindsgaul. I don't use it quiote as much as I had hoped but I just can't get rid of it.

      I forgot - they went for 650 - 750 dollar, a while ago on eBay.

      I also have a an Adel Rootstein mannequin that i'm trying to find out more about. You'd have thought with the Rootstein name being claseed as the 'Rolls Royce' of mannequins it would be easy to find info but it's not.
      Anyway, here's their official website, a good place to look for more info maybe.

      If i find any other sites, addresses or telephone numbers that help, i'll pass them on to you. Likewise if you find any leads please you contact me also.

      Many Thanks & Good Luck.

      Doh! I meant to add this website too.

      I believe they buy second hand mannequins.

      She is Sascha H9 from the classy lady long legs collection from Rootstein Circa 1977.Like fashion Rootstien makes collections every year and then moves on to new designs. thats probably why you hadsuch a had time finding out about her. she looks to be in good shape. would probably get you about $300.00 on ebay.
      Hope this helps. I restore Rootsteins so I buy and sell quite alot of them.
