Folk Art
Chalkware Yelloware Rabbit on Pedestal with Carrots
catalog #R242

Bring a piece of New England folk art into your home with this handcrafted Yelloware Rabbit on a Rooster. This wonderful piece was inspired by Early American Yelloware, 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 warmth and charm of yelloware from early American colonial days and offers a unique, handcrafted treasure that will last a lifetime.

Of special note: The figure was cast using a wonderful highly detailed rare antique German chocolate/ Barley Sugar mold and is handpainted with my Signature Yelloware finish. The piece is then glazed, antiqued and polished to give it the beautiful appearance of early Yelloware and Redware.
This absolutely charming figure, measuring 6 and 1/2 inches, is signed and dated..
