This is a pair of eskimo faces made of a type of what looks to be a type of composition or plaster casting. They are hand painted and very realistic looking. The faces are framed with real caribou fur. They really are awesome. They have a cardboard backing. Overall, each face is about 9" tall. The paint is excellent. They are very beautiful and lifelike.
Pair of chalk african man & woman busts. These are a matched set. I'm not sure of the age, but most likely 40+ years of age. They are solid cast, with nice weight. They measure about 9 1/4" tall. Nicely sculpted to appear life like. Good condition with the exception of a few chips on the bottom.( These are not noticeable when sitting on the table. Nice example of African art.

This is an awesome handpainted piece of pottery. It measures 7 1/4" diameter,and is signed on the back by the artist. I have included a photo of the signature though I cannot make it out. It is Australian, I believe. It depicts the profile of a warriers face, spears, and distant trees which appears to be the outback.There is crazing in the glaze. No damages, chips, or cracks. Such a wonderful item! Not sure of the age. I have personally had it 15+ years, and aquired it at a tag sale.
Cute little native salt and pepper shakers made of hand painted wood. Faux pearl earrings, paint excellent on one, and good on the other.2 3/4" tall. Corks intact. Great example of black americana collectible.
This is from the 1940's. It is from a boy scouts uniform. It is all hand beaded and sewn on leather to wear on the uniform. This is just too awesome for words. Fringed beaded bottom. Excellent condition.
This ceramic cookie jar measures about 12" tall. He wears white chef hat, apron, and pants with a blue shirt. He stands sternly with his hands on his hips. A little flaking in some areas of the cold paint. I would say 98% of the paint is in nice condition. He has no chips or cracks. A great addition to your black memorabilia collection. He has no marks or stickers. I could not id him in any of the books I have. Not even sure of date.
