    I have this great old functioning Drewry's Lamp in my bar. Have had it for years since it was made in my home town of South Bend, IN. by the Plasto MFG company. It is about 17" tall and still is a great conversation piece. I am wondering how old it may be? Any comments.

      I've aso seen a chalk ware similar to this from the 1950s. One recently sold at auction for over 700.

      Apparently chalkware is an American term for molded plaster figurines.

      Chalk or chalkware is actually plaster of Paris. Based on the logo located on the shade, this item is from the 50's. The chalkware statue itself is frequently auctioned on ebay (search"Drewrys" in breweriana category). Not a very high value because of how common it is - maybe $50 in good condition. With lamp it may go a bit higher. Hope this helps.
