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. Shipping overages are always reimbursed to within $2 of actual shipping.
