Folk Art Animals
Bring a piece of New England folk art into your home for the holidays with this hand-crafted chalkware Rabbit. This wonderful piece was handcrafted using an antique chocolate mold.
The art of molding plaster of paris, referred to as chalkware, into holiday treasures is a centuries-old German tradition. Bittersweet House Folk Art brings together this German tradition with the warmth and charm of designs from early American colonial days and offers a unique, handcrafted treasure that will last a lifetime.
Jumping Jack Rabbit is ready to leap right over Mr. McGregor's garden into a special place in your home. He was cast in chalkware using a wonderful highly detailed and rare antique German chocolate mold, hand painted antiqued and glazed to reflect an aged patina.
This charming figure, measuring 9 and 1/2 inches, signed and dated.
