Bring a piece of New England folk art into your home for the holidays with this hand crafted chalkware Rabbit. This wonderful piece was hand crafted 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 the German tradition of folk art chalkware with the warmth and charm of designs from early American colonial days and offers a unique, hand crafted treasure that will last a lifetime.
Mother Rabbit with her adorable sleeping bunny was cast using a wonderful highly detailed rare antique German chocolate mold. The piece is handpainted in antiqued white, glazed and aged to reflect a vintage patina. Mother Rabbit has a hand ruffled peachy pink crepe collar with gold ribbon trim.
This charming figure, measuring 6 inches, is signed "Bittersweet House Folk Art, K. Campbell, 2006, Sherborn, MA".
