A large, hollow and very unusual Chalkware figure of General George Washington astride a white horse. Washington has his sabre drawn. He is wearing a blue waistcoat with gold trim and a blue hat. They sit on an elaborate base decorated with 5-pointed stars. The figure is 12 ½” tall and the oval base is 8 ½” x 3 ¼”. Very fine condition: no cracks breaks or obvious repairs. The paint is worn (typical of these painted pieces), but the wear just adds a mellowness to the figure. I date this to the late 19th century, possibly as early as the Centennial in 1876. It is a most unusual Chalkware form and the size makes it special.
