Plaster Statues

Between the 1930’s and early 1950’s plaster statues were produced by various makers. Some are engraved with the makers name, however most are not. Some became popular as show prizes. These were predominantly in the form of Kookaburra and Koala designs. Made of plaster they were either hollow or solid moulds. Less common models were cockatoos, parrots and owls. A very popular mould was “Story of Love” found in various sizes and by various makers. 

Restoration:Acrylic paints should be avoided as that renders the piece unattractive. Fine line felt pens can be used to touch up bumps and minor blemishes.
