Chalkware Round Scenic
Isn’t it romantic? A young southern couple cuddle under the Magnolia blossoms in a lovely scene made of a material called chalkware. The painted colors of pink, yellow, green and blue are still bright and lively. This beautiful couple is surrounded by an ivory frame of hearts. There are a few chips to the paint as would be expected of a piece of this age, but overall it’s in wonderful condition, especially for chalkware. Porcelain flowers, possibly from an old broach, have been applied to the top. The back has a hanger so you can either display it on the wall or on an easel as shown (sorry – the one in the picture is not included). The piece is approximately 10-3/4” in diameter and 3/4'' deep. What a wonderful wedding or anniversary gift this would make!
