Vintage 1920's Carnival Chalkware Doll In Flapper Bathing Suit:
Up for offer is this very sweet chalkware bathing beauty probably from the 1920's and most likely a carnival prize. She measures about 4 1/2" across, 7" high and 3" wide and is wearing a dark purple one-piece swimsuit with pink polka dots and lace up boots. She has side-glancing eyes with delicate eyelashes. There are markings on the bottom in, I believe, pencil but it is impossible for me to read them. A small piece of chalk dislodged and is inside the piece which rattles when shaken. Please look at all the photographs which show the chips, flaking and wear. There is a small hole in between the thumb and first finger of her left hand which appears original and may have been used to insert something she was holding. Her sweet face has survived almost 100 years.
