Black Americana | Vintage Collectibles | Old LuxeBlack collectibles (circa 1920 to 1950’s) produced in several countries (USA, Japan and Europe).
Usually feature black people in stereotypical situations such as
performing household duties. After the 1950’s (post civil rights
movement) black collectibles were considered insulting and derogatory
and many pieces were destroyed and production of these pieces came to an
end. However, in the 1970’s interest in these pieces returned
especially among high profile African Americans. Black Americana
collectors have brought profile to these pieces resulting in prices to
Two Vintage Keepers! Black Americana at its best.
What a great find, two chalk ware decorative plaques. One is of a
little girl holding her parasol and the other is of a little boy holding
an umbrella. Beautifully hand painted, lots of attention to detail,
colors are vivid bright and cheerful. Both the little girl and little
boy have happy expressions on their faces bordering on adorable. I love
the texture of the hair (you can see in the pictures the attention to
detail). Both of them have good body language movement.
What I really like about these two pieces is their condition. In my
opinion I would categorize these pieces as being in mint vintage
condition, that is not to say they are in perfect condition. Chalk ware
is fragile media therefore I am covering myself by saying that they are
in Mint "vintage" condition. I have dealt with allot of black
Americana chalk ware I would have to categorize these two pieces as in
fabulous condition - see all pictures. This is not to say you won’t
find imperfections - there are no breaks or cracks compromising these
two figures. They have been packed away for a very long time until I
came across them.
The boy measures 8-1/2" inches high by 5-1/2 inches wide at the base.
The girl measures 8-1/2" inches high by 5-1/2 inches at the widest part of the parasol.
