Manufacturer: Pre War American Production
Two unusual pieces of old carnival chalkware - they're bear figurines and they are flocked. The standing bear is 10-1/4" tall and is mounted on a molded plaster slab painted to look like a slice of redwood tree trunk. The front has is smooth, and is where a label or souvenir decal would have been placed. If the bear ever had one, it's no longer present. The second bear is about 10" long by 5-3/4" high. I'm not sure how well you can see it in the pictures, but the bears' "fur" is textured under the flocking to simulate natural muscles and skin folds. Both are in excellent vintage condition with no chips, just a few very minor wear areas to the clocking, mostly at the backs, and the usual small manufacturing imperfections common to old plaster chalkware. No markings as to manufacture or origin but they are at least 80 years old and wonderful. Price is for the pair.
