    My trip to Volunteer's of America today netted me this lovely Asian beauty Marwal bust. She has the most amazing eyes and except for a few easily touched up nicks to her hair in back she's almost perfect. Clearly marked and dated on the back 1965 Marwal Ind. Inc. by Brower. She looks amazing for being fifty years old. She may have been one of a pair but I'm not sure. There's not much about the company that I could find online. They did make a variety of these busts that represent cultures from all over the world. -Mike-

      Beautiful, mike!

      I have a set of heads that are white, bought them in a yard sale, and I see them every so often at the second hands, so I didn't think they had much value, I just liked the way they look. Yours is very attractive!

      Thanks Karen and Katherine for the "loves" :) .... I've seen a few online and they're selling for fifty to a hundred. I was lucky to pay just five dollars !

      In the UK we have chalkware busts, mainly Legend and Bossons. I personally love the Bossons. Yours is excellent and given me something to look out for. In North Wales on the Island of Angelesy, there was a pub called the Pilot and its interior décor was entirely given up to Bossons heads.

      She's gorgeous!! Want to trade, LOL. :)

      Thanks Ken... She just needs a make over....lol :) Luckily this one just had some minor nicks to her hair in the back which was an easy fix with a black sharpie. I think Ho2 has one as well that he posted a couple weeks ago.
