Large butchers display chalkware cow

Large butchers display chalkware cow

An impressive early 20thC butchers shop display figure of a recumbent cow. Beautifully modelled in plaster/chalkware to a large scale, with the original paint and a flat back for window or counter display.


61cm total approx length (24")
35.5cm height to top of horn (14")

Very good original condition with no significant damage or losses. Some slight wear and marks commensurate with age, mostly to the back. A small patch above the cow's left eye has some old touch out paint, but does not detract from the piece. The finish of the paint has nicely patinated with small areas that are crackling and crazing but not flaking off, mostly in the green on the base.
