Large butchers display chalkware cow

Large butchers display chalkware cow

An impressive early 20thC butchers shop display figure of a recumbent cow. Beautifully modelled in plaster/chalkware to a large scale, with the original paint and a flat back for window or counter display.


61cm total approx length (24")
35.5cm height to top of horn (14")

Very good original condition with no significant damage or losses. Some slight wear and marks commensurate with age, mostly to the back. A small patch above the cow's left eye has some old touch out paint, but does not detract from the piece. The finish of the paint has nicely patinated with small areas that are crackling and crazing but not flaking off, mostly in the green on the base.

  • International customers and combined shipping

    International buyers (outside of the UK) - When you add an item to your cart you can select a shipping destination and the postage will be calculated. Usually this is correct, but for multiple purchases and larger items it is advisable to enquire before purchasing, as shipping is based on rough estimates to different regions and may vary to that stated. You may 'buy it now' with the shipping cost calculated, but if this is incorrect we may contact you after purchase. We will either issue a refund for the difference, or request for a remaining postage balance to be paid, either way we will always contact you before any changes are made. Our standard postage costs include tracking where possible and usually require a signature upon receipt, please also include a contact phone number when ordering. Postage to P.O. boxes must be enquired about before purchase as many shippers do not deliver to them. 

    *Multiple purchases - If you would like to purchase multiple items we can usually combine shipping. It is best to message us first for a shipping quote, but to avoid missing out you can purchase items through the website immediately without paying a shipping fee. Add the desired pieces to your cart, then view your cart and in order summary there is a drop down menu with postage options. Select *Multiple purchases & combined shipping* and the shipping price will be removed. You can now pay for your selected items and we will contact you with a shipping quote to then be paid separately.
