Found this little filthy treasure at my local flea market. 5 bucks.
It is chalkware from Prelude Creations dated 1973. It has some noticeable repairs and some needed repairs. There is a felt covering on the bottom . I love chalkware items,, I have a nice Esco Al Jolson ,,especially oddball types. I cannot find any information on this company on the internet which is very strange. One blog entry I read said that there were 4 in a set from Prelude Creations , a slot machine,,a roullette table and a craps table. This is 3 distinctive characters playing blackjack against a blue sunglass wearing dealer. Very heavy and colorful. Apparently a glass ashtray was placed in the rounded area and I believe these might have been sold in Las Vegas at the Alladin casino. Hope you enjoy. Any addtl info would be appreciated.
