The general object of the: invention is to pro
vide a stand or ?xture in which a mannequin,
model or the like used in display of wearing ap
parel such as dresses, coats, et cetera, is animated
in a manner to attract attention and to centre it
upon the article on display by causing the 10
mannequin or model to rotate with an accom
plate Ii! of rectangular shape for supporting the
turntable II and the mechanismby which it is
actuated. Said base plate is a ?at member pref
erably rectangular shape and of greater length
than width:
