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 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 this German tradition with the warmth and charm of designs from early American colonial days and offers a unique, hand crafted 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, handpainted in amber and honey gold, glazed, and antiqued to reflect an aged patina.
This charming figure, measuring 9 and 1/2 inches, is signed and dated.
