This vintage BEAST - 11 inches is hand-sculpted and originally hand-painted chalkware highlights the highly detailed iconic ARMADILLO, which became the official Texas state mascot thanks to LONE STAR "The National Beer of Texas." since 1884. The look is finished off by IT drinking the beer bottle which is included - as per designed by the artist. Never intended for resale! No manufacturing markings - exact production date is unknown, but the chalkware version is before the plastic version. ARMADILLO's in unbelievable original condition considering these, usually, just haven't survived. Only slightly used and abused by years of having been exposed to the elements with a finish that's as good as it gets - great patina - just the way we like'em!
