Chalkware art bust is Italian Renaissance man not Native American
Q I inherited a chalk art piece that is an unusual native American bust. I love the patina and the years of wear as well as the family history connected to it. Although I am certain it is a carnival art piece, I was told that it was a 1920s purchase from a now defunct Midwest store. Can you direct me to any sources where I can determine the history and origin of the piece and its value?
