1940’s- 50’s Snow White Carnival Chalkware Figure
1940’s- 50’s Snow White Carnival Chalkware Figure

Year: 1940’s, 1950’s
Manufacturer: Unknown
Condition: Very good condition figure
1st edition vintage collectable

To be honest I’d never heard of carnival chalkware until I saw this item at an estate sale. The date is unknown, but most carnival chalkware was made in the 1940’s or early 50’s. The statue has a primitive painted look on purpose, and is decorated with glitter, making it a unique variation.

Snow White is unmarked, so she’s probably not a licensed product based on the Walt Disney animated film, but instead a statue made for giving away as prizes. It’s a big 15″ tall by 5 1/2″ wide. Snow White has lost just a little of her glitter, (haven’t we all), but overall is in very good shape for it’s age, with no cracks or chips and the semi-glossy paint job is still bright and nicely done for a collectable originally given away at a carnival.

1970’s Hand Carved Alaskan Jade Grizzly Bear Family Trio
1970’s Hand Carved Alaskan Jade Grizzly Bear Family Trio

Year: 1970’s
Manufacturer: Unknown
Condition: Excellent condition
First edition vintage collectable

Jade has a long history of being a very collectable mineral. The natural lustrous translucent green patina is pleasing to the eye and to the touch. Jade is known for it’s healing powers and mystical properties. It’s hardness factor is similar to quartz, and because it’s a challenge to carve, inferior jade sculpture is easy to spot. 

This beautifully hand carved jade grizzly bear family trio highlights the skills of a professional artist. The piece is carved from a lustrous spinach green nephrite jade mined from Alaska, home to some of the largest deposits of the world’s finest nephrite jade. It features mama grizzly and her two cubs about to enjoy a nice meal, each with a fresh caught salmon in their mouths. The trio are standing on a natural shaped triangular jade base, with a small natural finish jade facade behind them.

The mama bear with salmon is appx. 3” long and 2” tall. The overall size of the piece is appx. 4” x 6 1/2” x 2 1/8″” tall and weighs exactly one pound. The surface is smooth and polished, with a very minor vein inclusion on the back of the mama grizzly, otherwise it’s in pristine condition with no chips or scratches.

2004 Arnold Schwarzenegger Montage Limited Edition Framed Signed Print by Nick Shotwell
2004 Arnold Schwarzenegger Montage Limited Edition Framed Signed Print by Nick Shotwell

Year: 2004
Artist: Nick Shotwell
Condition: Near mint condition print
First edition vintage collectable

This limited edition signed print of Arnold Schwarzenegger is drawn by illustrator Nick Shotwell. The story reads like a fairytale, but it’s true, and it goes like this. Schwarzenegger was at a prominent bodybuilding and sports event in Columbus, Ohio. Artist Nick Shotwell attended the event and brought along a montage of portraits he had drawn of his idol, hoping Schwarzenegger would autograph it. Somehow, he managed to get backstage, and he stationed himself beside Schwarzenegger’s waiting limousine.

Not only did he get an autograph, but he got a call from Schwarzenegger’s secretary a week later asking if he could create some more artwork for him. “It was amazing,” recalls Shotwell. “He was my number-one idol and it meant a lot to me that he thought I was a talented artist. Had I not met him, I don’t know if I would have had the confidence to believe I could do art for a living and become a medical animator.”

The print measures 18 1/4″ x 24 1/4″ and is in near mint condition. It comes in a basic black metal frame with plexiglas that has some signs of age, including a few dings and scratches. Would look best re-framed but the current one has helped protect the artwork.
