Chalkware figures are so innocent and absolutely charming. Linda Rosen Antiques features several on her site, including the deer (below), which is not a form I see too often. Love his lopsided eyes.
Bridlehurst Farm (via DigAntiques) sells these two precious spaniels -- kind of like Staffordshire gone country primitive.
Also at Trocadero, Susequehanna Antiques Company features a very sweet rabbit:
. . . and for the biggest grand-daddy of them all, The Sign of The Whale Antiques offers this amazing BIG chalkware mastiff. I've never seen this form before -- and I'm in love with the expression on his face!
I wish I could say that old owl hook-rug I made in 7th grade was as delightful as these figures . . . but let's face it: it's ugly!
