Retro Framed Chalkware Figures

IMG_5649

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.
