XAVIER CUGAT… Submitted by k2dtw December 31st, 2010 XAVIER CUGAT… It’s a kitschy Xavier Cugat wall chalk.. This is the only one I’ve ever seen???.. I bought it years ago in a Antique Mall roaming around Florida. Thought maybe they were a old music store display???… does anyone know??
Wow! I couldn’t believe your Bing Crosby matching head and record (https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2010/12/19/bing-crosby/) and now you hit us again with Xavier Cougat!
Did the record and head come together or did you buy the record once you found the head so you could display them together?
I’ve never seen Xavier in chalk anywhere before but I do thankfully have him in rubber: https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2010/10/24/allee-willis-kitsch-o-the-day-xavier-cugat-cork/
Thank you… The chalk heads were together in a showcase up near their cash desk…spotted them when we were checking out of the mall. Thought they were so cool.
I love your Xavier…quite a profile!!…smile.
OH my gosh, this totally blows my mind!!!!!! I cant’ believe something this awesome exists.
Here’s a photo of a Cugat painting I saw at an antique shop:
I’ve seen prints of that. Fantastic. Happy New Year!
I love this… it seems to have that we look like our pet theme??
Another great item. And, synchronistically, just a few days ago I met some friends who were in town and we ate at a restaurant called Coogies in Malibu that apparently was named after Xavier Cugat.
I bet that was a fun, it could be a great theme.
