Passed a yard sale today while cruising the back roads.







Older guy died and the wife is selling off lots of his stuff...sale started on Thursday so not much was left today.







I saw these sitting in the garage and was looking at one and saw it was dated 1955 in the cement cast.







Kind of thought the small one with the red hat was cool...so I asked what she wanted.







She said nobody gave them a second look so it was buy one get five free.







Pretty neat that some of them have hand written notes on the bottom with the address they were at in the 1940s.

My mom used to carve pickaninnys out of wood and sell them at the craft fair.

Those might be highly collectible...

I know jack all about collectables but I suspect those are worth some money.  How much did you pay for them?

in before the butthurt.



I saw some around just a few months ago.

Another vote for collectible and probably worth a few hundred to the right person

I totally want one for my lawn.

I think all are original paint with the one exception being the one that looks the newest in the picture. That one has some wear but was probably repainted at one point.

It's fine.

I have my yard boy Amabo. He helps me with gun pictures when he's not in the front yard holding a confederate flag.

And oddly enough, a lot of the market for them is driven by black folks.

Destroy period folk art because bad feels?  

 



This is the kind of shit that show's up on antique road show for like 300K.  







No, no in your method only lies at best, missing out on resale cash, at worst advocating destruction of art, which places you in the realm of Hitler and ISIS.

They call them 'yammies' around here. My brother has one with a fishing pole and a carp on his shoulder.

I often see those on the front porches of homes in which, based upon appearance, I would not feel comfortable taking my shoes off inside...


If that tells you anything....

Been looking for a lawn jockey that holds up a lantern for years! Good score, just because they're not  "PC"

OP, you secured a piece of our collective history there that so many are trying to rewrite.  



If we were neighbors, I'd bring you over a bottle of whiskey.

Had one in the circle drive of the private school I went to.



 
Link Posted: 4/24/2016 9:51:48 AM EDT

OP is clearly an insensitive, racist bastard.


You need to immediately destroy these items and disavow any knowledge of their existence.





Or, just put pictures of them on Facebook and let the butthurt flow.

Now that's out of the way I'm going with the others in saying those might have some collector value.  Can you say Antiques Road Show!

I see those around the neighborhood I work in every so often.

You need to take those to have them appraised .

I just went on Ebay and saw reproductions  selling for $40 but yours are original .

A few originals I saw were selling for a few hundred a piece ...nice score

Nice score OP.

That one sounds like a reproduction...

I know the antique archeology guys are into the black art stuff. Maybe shoot them an email with some pictures?

Can't show my mom that... she'd want the whole set..
Link Posted: 4/24/2016 10:11:49 AM EDT
It looks like newly cast newly painted ones go for about 80 shipped on ebay.   With a date and original paint I bet double.  

I flip them all and keep the little dude in the hat.  Hes cool.

Same here. I want cast though. Most go for over $500 and are beat.
My grandparents had a very nice pair of them. When they passed my evil bitch aunt took them. I'm sure she sold them as she doesn't collect antiques.
There are several in my area, most have been pc painted.

Eta, nice find op.
