Once called the poor man’s porcelain, Chalkware is a molded collectible ceramic likened to plaster. Usually decorated with watercolor pigment and other types of paint, chalkware was largely produced in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Found at carnivals and fairs, this chalkware horse bank was made in Mexico and imported to the United States. With this bank you actually have to break it in order to access your savings, so making him as beautiful as possible was the goal here. Dark Bay brown with festive saddle and red bridle, green fauna and a white oval base. No marks or stamps other than MEXICO hand-written on the bottom. Bank is in very good vintage condition, although true to the nature of chalkware there are some chips in the paint so please check the photos closely. C1970s, measures 10 ½ inches long x 10 ½ inches high x 4 inches wide.
