The best repro Chalkware ever!



Yes she's a repro! This is the latest addition I have up from my favourite guy who does repro chalkware. He is so talented! I was lucky enough to visit his home and see his own personal collection. I was truly gobsmacked at the vast array of truly beautiful wall masks from very elaborate art deco women to 1950's mambo dancers. I was even more gobsmacked to find out that he had made every single one from an original and sold on the original. He is the most talented guy I've ever seen doing these.

Sadly he's not selling any on ebay at the moment, but I'll be sure to let you know when he is next! He's also not ridiculously expensive.

Here is a couple more from him, truly fabulous!

Love the Carmen head!

I collect Nubian figurines and wall heads from 50's/60's.
Some professor in Sweden wrote a long piece in a magazine that it was degrading and racist.
Bullshit man!
I mean, back then Nubian's were something exotic and in Sweden we didn't have many black people so I don't know what this man is playing at.
And if I were a racist, would I want Nubian's all over the place?
What an idiot.
