Catalog #R246;

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, handcrafted treasure that will last a lifetime.

This sweet Bunny Rabbit was cast in chalkware using a wonderful highly detailed rare antique chocolate mold. Hand-painted in warm honey brown, glazed, and antiqued to reflect an aged patina.
This absolutely charming figure, measuring 7 and 1/2 inches, is signed and dated.
