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.

Offered here is a Chalkware Teddy Bear cast using a wonderful highly detailed rare antique German chocolate mold (Anton Reiche, Dresden Germany) and is handpainted, glazed, and antiqued and then adorned with a satin ribbon.
This absolutely charming figure, measuring approx 5 inches by 4 and 3/4 inches , is signed "Bittersweet House Folk Art, K. Campbell, 2006, Sherborn, MA".
