19th C. European Painted Wood / Cloth Madonna

Europe, France or Italy, ca. 19th century CE. A pretty wooden statuette with cloth robes and brightly painted details. It depicts an older Madonna, holding a book, wearing a beautiful blue dress, white head covering, and gold wrap. One hand is raised, as if in greeting. Her eyes are blue glass and she stands on an octagonal green base. A nice example of some of the finely-produced religious art that would have been common in middle class 19th century European homes, blending Catholic worship of the Virgin Mary with the high quality level of craftsmanship for many consumer items from that time. Size: 2.5" W x 5" H (6.4 cm x 12.7 cm)

Condition: Wear to paint, but overall excellent condition for age

Provenance: Ex - Collection of Deacon K. Giacone
