Very Vintage Chalkware Vignette

Inside the vintage wood box, beside the faux floral pot, and atop the rug material coaster, is a very special vintage figurine.

A Roman Art Co Inc, Robia Ware #182 chalkware mailman figurine (with label), my Grandma's, is in the box. It is in very, very good condition, with one very minute paint chip on one boot. So cute. So special, being a family piece.





I couldn't find another of these Roman Art Co Inc #182 Robia Ware figurines on the internet today! Don't know anything about the company, or date of manufacture, but isn't he fun?
