These black Art Deco plaques featuring white and blue swans have not been treated the way they should. As retro fabulous as they are, a few drunken stumbles or clumsy handling have marred their perfection. You know what? They are STILL fabulous.

They are made out of black painted plaster, with a wavy textured black background and two pairs of creamy white swans with their wings and tail feathers tinged with that beautiful sea blue everyone is so crazy about. The swans have metallic gold beaks.

The side of the plaques are stamped "1965 Miller Studios Inc." which really surprised me- I would have bet on them being from the 1950s. They each measure 7" tall, 3 3/4" wide and 1/2" thick.
They each have a wire loop on the back to hang on the wall.

The imperfections include two repaired breaks on one plaque (see photo). The two edges on the top break were not matched perfectly. The bottom break has chips out of both sides which show from the side (although not from the front). This plaque also has a small chip out of the bottom front. Both breaks and chip have been repainted which makes them slightly less apparent. The second plaque has a shallow but large chip off of the top front, which was repaired with black paint.

ALL that said, it's not as bad as it sounds. They are still so retro and definitely look vintage. If imperfections bother you, these are not for you. Or- maybe you are like me who believes imperfections make an item more beautiful.

Please take better care of these little treasures better than the previous owner did!
