56 YEARS OLD AND LOOKS GREAT

Bossuns was a series of chalkware made from the 1960s through the 1970s as a set for collectors and most ended up hung on the wall. I remember growing up, we had 3 of these in a row on a wall in the living room. Mostly heads, and animals, the most eerily realistic ones are the faces such as this one. The artists got every wrinkle and curve, and then the painting was awesome. Hand painted so each one is slightly different and totally unique. The colors and tones are as realistic as chalkware can be. Check out the teeth on Fagin! These things look real! I have 7 or 8 of these to list and while some of the more common ones sell for $28 to $35 including shipping, others are closer to $40 plus.
This FAGIN from 1964 has NO chips or damage to the plaster, but some paint spots rubbed away. I have a box of artists paints (over 45) and could touch-up the larger spots pretty easily as you just need to be close and its better than the bare white. Even a good set of markers with several greens and such can really make it look great for a wall hanger, but it is priced 33% lower than the others.
You can see the size as several photos I am holding it in my hand. Has the stamp as well as the brand stamp/copyright pressed into the clay.
MADE IN ENGLAND AND IMPORTED IN THE 1960s
