Details

vintage Alexander Backer Ballet Dancers. Large black & creamy white figural masked ballerinas. A rare set of mid century wall art. Chippy chalkware for your shabby cottage/

One male ballerina and one woman ballerina, both outfitted in ballet attire, pointe shoes, and masks. You can hang them in any number of configurations.

Colors are creamy white, dark tan, black, red, and gold.

These mid-century beauties deserve a place of honor on the walls of somebody's home! Maybe yours? Or a special prima ballerina you know?

Stamped (c) Alexander Backer on the back of their arms.

Each figure is approx. 14" tall.

I encourage you to enlarge the photos so you can really see the pieces, their chippiness (on clothing, elbows, etc.), and the the fact that they do need a bit of a cleaning. The male seems to have been spattered with something at some point, but it certainly doesn't detract from the appearance (it might even be mold/mildew spots? I'm not sure).

I think it could be a long time before you come across another set like this!

They are quite heavy and the cost will vary depending on which part of the country you are in.
They will be shipped USPS Priority Mail and fully insured.
Shipping overages are always reimbursed to within $2 of actual shipping.

These came so quickly, and they are SO beautiful. I bought them on a whim because they remind me of the hearth in my grandparents' house—which was recently sold, and which was my favorite place in the world—so these hold a special meaning to me! They were packaged beautifully, and the proprietors of this Etsy shop included a kind note and three blank cards. A really great experience all around. Thank you!

Returns & exchanges

Unfortunately we do not offer refunds or exchanges. We try to be as descriptive as possible and we try to take good, clear photos (as they say, a picture is worth 1,000 words). We ask that you enlarge all photos to really examine what you are purchasing and convo us if you have any questions before purchasing. Everything we sell is vintage, and most vintage items do bear some marks of age, years of use, etc. But it is precisely those flaws that give vintage items such charm and character!
