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 the German tradition of folk art chalkware with the colors of Tuscany and offers a unique, handcrafted treasure that will last a lifetime.


The Chalkware Rabbit Family in a Tuscan Egg is cast using a wonderful highly detailed rare antique German chocolate mold. The family of rabbits are nestled in a large Egg handpainted in the deep coral tones of Italian villas. A beautiful Tuscan scene adds to the charm.
The figure, measuring 5 and 1/2 inches, is signed "Bittersweet House Folk Art, K. Campbell, 2006, Sherborn, MA".
