1930’s – 1940’s unique Vintage Chalk Ware Thai Art Lady Standing Statue – Was more than likely made for the tourist or for the soldiers stationed in Asia during WWII for souvenir purposes.
The artisan who crafted these pieces had a good eye for detail, beautiful proportions and skin colour.
No major damage, two small gouges on the upper left rib cage (see picture), other tiny nicks in a few places exposing the white chalk Ware underneath, no cracks.
It is surprising that pieces such as this have survived as they are quite fragile, despite the small nicks it is a beautiful figure of the period and a piece of art. In clever hands this chalk ware lady could be restored or just left as is, still beautiful.
