Dutch Girl Chalkware String Head

dutch girl string head
This cool plaster string head is in great vintage shape, beautifully finished, with no dings or cracks in the original matte glaze; from her blue eyes to her golden yellow cap. This string head’s mold provided a space for a ball of string or cord to dispense; in this case through the pursed lips. String heads found in various styles were indispensable prior to tape for securing packages. One would wrap the package in paper and conveniently dispense, cut sections, and knot the string or cord from the string head mounted on the wall. The sturdy cord, original to the piece, makes it easy for you to hang the string head for display or everyday use in your kitchen or laundry room.
