Bossons SARACEN 1960 Chalkware Arab Head w Original Tag
We've purchased 3 vintage Bossons chalkware models from an estate sale. All are heads or busts, all have the same theme. They are Arab or desert warriors. All are brightly colored with incredibly realistic details, especially in the skin which looks lined and weathered. This one is entitled: SARACEN. He still has the original hang tag. Impressed mark in red area underneath: Saracen 1960 Bossons England. Back is also impressed with marks: Bossons World Copyright Reserved. Numbers and slashes are also inscribed in the back. 7" high x 4.5" wide (approximate) x 2.75" deep (sticks out from wall that far). Imbedded metal bar for hanging. A group of small areas of surface wear show up as white spots. They don't appear to be chips, but places where the paint has flaked off... the most noticeable is on his nose. There's one spot on his right mustache and a group on the ornament in his turban and the top of those feathers. They could be touched up if you're an artistic type or have some paints around the house. He still looks great! A very dramatic piece... and the grouping looks super together. If you bid on more than one, we can combine shipping.
