Folk Art Animals
Hand Painted Santas
Chocolate molds     Spring Chalkware
Offered here is a hand crafted Bittersweet House Folk Art Rabbit sitting in an egg decorated with a robin and all of the flowers of spring. The back side of the piece has a simple Easter greeting. The rabbit is created by molding chalkware into a rare German antique chocolate mold. The piece is hand painted and antiqued, capturing the warmth and beauty of a special time and the nostalgia of yesteryear. The inspiration for my artwork reflects a love of floral and fauna, historical art motifs and the beauty of nature. The folk art rabbit measures approx 4 inches, is signed, numbered and dated on the bottom.
