Chalkware Figurine Ladies
These are my 2 Chalkware Ladies.......they are my favourite two pieces. I have them on the front of this 19th century French Canadian cabinet.
I believe that they were made to give away as prizes at Carnivals, circuses, etc.......in them old days.
One day I was at this Flea Market outside the city and there was a booth with this real mess of a set/up. Nothing was put nicely or on shelves. This poor man had everything in these big bins just piled up high. These are my favourite type of dealers........I think becuase of the 'hunt' for something special. Well to make a long story short I saw this lil' face peeking amongst the junk and I pulled her out and fell in love with her. The junk dealer said there is another one someplace.........so we went through the bins and voila! I found her twin.
The junk man told me he would ask normally $20.00 for each but since I was so excited by them he gave them to me both for $5.............wow! I thought that was a good deal.
