The figures were in really great shape and needed just a little touch up. The background was faded to gray.
Mel and I came across these at an antique store in San Jose. As I am sure you all know by now, I love chalkware. I can’t ever get enough chalkware pieces.
Both figures had wear on their nose and knees.
The figures are painted in a pearl yellow paint.
I was not aware how faded the backgrounds were until I removed the figures.
You can see the original aqua color behind the figure.
After I repainted the backgrounds the figures pop!
These will be breathtaking when finally hung on the wall.
