60 YEARS OLD AND LOOKS AMAZING!!

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. Check the face on this guy, even the stubble looks reaL! Hand painted so each is slightly different and totally unique. The colors and tones are as realistic as chalkware can be. 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+. This SOMBRERO from 1960 is one of the first in the series. You rarely see them in this condition as this 60 year old chalkware has just a few small paint nicks in out of the way areas. One of the finest examples. 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

I HAVE 6 OR 7 OF THESE AND SEVERAL ANIMAL DESIGNS AS WELL
