Miller Chalkware Swan Wall Plaques 1968. Pretty pair of vintage chalkware Swan wall plaques, made in 1968 by Miller Studio, Inc., New Philadelphia, Ohio. Both are painted pearlescent white with gold accents handpainted on their highly detailed wing feathers. Both have metal wires on the back for wall hanging; one wire is attached; one is detached but could be redone.
Both Swans are in excellent condition with little to no surface wear. One Swan has no chips or cracks. The other Swan does have the tip of a tail feather missing, but with the way the tail feathers are molded, it really doesn't detract from its overall appearance, in my opinion. (See photos). Backside of both Swans are smooth white chalkware and have a little metal visible with slight rust. The metal is used in the molding process when the Swans were cast into molds.
Each swan measures 9-1/2 inches long and 7-1/2 inches wide. Markings impressed into each swan along the outside edge "Copyright 1968 Miller Studio, Inc.".
This lovely pair of Swans will make a great addition for your collection of vintage chalkware. Or enjoy them as wall art to add a touch of vintage to your home decor!
