Marwal Industries (USA) Chalkware Bust | Woman with Spanish Headdress, in Red *RARE FIND*
Marwal Industries was a company based in Miami, Florida, famous for their chalkware pieces which took success across the 1950s/60s.
A number of highly collectible busts were produced, depicting men, women and children from a variety of ethnicities - Polynesian, Japanese, Spanish and Middle Eastern.
A fabulous piece from their 1960s collection; a gorgeous woman with Spanish headdress, known as a mantilla.
This particular chalkware beauty measures approx 28cm (11") tall and is in great to excellent vintage condition. The only wear we can see is a couple of small areas of paint loss, but very small.
She is stamped on the reverse side with the year of manufacturer - 1966 in this instance - and has a felt base.
A highly collectible piece and a perfect addition to any mid-century home décor arrangement!
