Chalk-ware, Molded Plaster German Shepherd, with Base.


Chalk-ware is an American term for popular figurines either made of molded plaster of Paris or sculpted gypsum and painted. They were primarily created during one of three periods, from the late 18th century to the beginning of the 20th century, during the great depression, and during the mid-century modern era. Those created during the earlier period were intended as more serious decorative art, often imitating the more expensive imported English Staffordshire pottery figurines such as Staffordshire dog figurines those during the second period, by contrast, were more typically somewhat jocular. Early Chalk-ware was often hollow and was difficult to find unblemished. Remaining pieces of MCM and earlier chalkware can be easily found today with more exotic or rare examples fetching hundreds or thousands of dollars by collectors on auction sites and other dealers.
