Hi Ms. Mannington,Art Deco era full body shop mannequins are fairly desirable on the market and they sell for $1500 - $2000 USD at auction, or $1988AUD - $2650AUD. ~Nora

Hi Ms. Mannington, Yes, you would want to go through smaller local auction houses as opposed to the large name blue chip auction companies. You can try: Abbey's: Leonard Joel: and The Collector: In addition, you can also try posting to Craigslist or through facebook as they do not charge a listing fee nor do they take a commission upon sale; this is how you would make the most net profit on your Deco mannequin. ~Nora
