Chalkware is a term that refers to decorative items made out of gypsum, which were very popular from the late 18th century through the 1930s. Gypsum is a mineral compound also called sulphate of lime, which is usually found underground near limestone deposits. Raw gypsum is a pure white crystal called alabaster. When gypsum is heated, the resulting white powder is called burnt gypsum, also known as Plaster of Paris for the large gypsum deposit at Montmartre in Paris. Ordinary schoolroom chalk is also a form of burnt gypsum. Gypsum is easily cast into sculptures and decoration for frames, but is quite soft and breaks easily.

Condition
Condition: AVERAGE
In overall average condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'average condition' relative the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see quite a few 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include significant nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel, or chalkware object, significant wear to a painted surface, speckling on a mirror, crazing, wear to gilding, or manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, significant wear to a label, and original decorative trim may be missing. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be mentioned in the listing. Average condition may also include chips or cracks in ceramic or marble, which may or may not be specifically noted in the listing.
Item Specifics: Shows significant wear to the painted surface due to age and use.
