40's Chalk Figurine Civil War Era Southern Belle w Fawn
Here is a 1940's vintage chalk figurine of a Civil War era Southern belle in a tiered "gone with the wind" gown. She is petting a baby deer and holding a bouquet of flowers. Initials or numbers are hand incised in the chalk/plaster at back bottom edge. Raised letters at back bottom edge read: Made in Italy. Paper covering base has faded printed letters with the same inscription. 7.5" high. Base is 4" wide x 3.5" front to back. There is slight wear to surface finish and color in a few small spots... back of hair and between shoulder blades. Light flaking/cracking of chalk around bottom edge in spots... largest area is under the fawn's hind foot. Good condition otherwise. Purchased from an estate sale.
