Beautiful dancer in a skin tight 2 piece dress and hat decorated with card suits. Red Slinky bracelets and arm band match her earrings and lipstick.
Standing next to an Urn. (light) The light is in working order. Looks like someone replaced the electric socket and it doesn't sit straight up in the urn. Some paint appears to have been touched up, See Pictures (card suits, jewelry, eyes). The chalkware is in great shape, no chips or cracks.
I just wiped her down with water. Not too much about Pittsburgh Statuary Co online.The Pittsburgh Statuary Lamp Co made Chalkware TV Lamps. Some chalkware pieces were formed in molds taken from Staffordshire and other popular figurines. In either case the chalkware was just about always painted with a water based pigment. Because chalkware chipped easily and its fragile colors sat exposed on the surface of the pieces rather than being fired like a glaze, very few pieces from the early 19th to mid 20th centuries, the heyday of the material, have survived without dings and scratches. Even pieces that survived unscathed often look dingy and careworn - because it is so fragile, chalkware essentially cannot be cleaned.
