    I've got quite a bit of this stuff - plaster or chalkware from the 50s and 60s. And this is one of my favourites, bought for a song on Ebay because she was a bit busted up. One of the few things that I love that I can restore reasonably well. Anyway, I think she is quite enigmatic. She is at the top of the stairs in our house. my children didn't agree with my sentiments - rather they thought she was bloody scary - especially when she is the only light switched on on the landing, but they've come round to my way of thinking - after a few years!!
    A large piece about 20in in height - I need to put her on a dimmer!

      She's lovely! Great size and restoration. What did you do? Some replaster and how? I have a chalkware 8" Mary but passed on the matching Jesus - he was just too scary. I kick myself now since they were a pair. I'll post her for you later.

      Hi Phil - I'll post it now. One of my names is Mary so I am attracted to Mary items. :-)

      And I'll post my ongoing restoration of a beautiful 19C Plaster Mary later - maybe by the w/e

      Love it!! ....and with the light!! What a beautiful piece!!

      You can buy those lightbulbs that look like a *Candle flame*, and not as bright -- maybe you could try that -- and the Kids will like it better and not be scared!!
