This is a beautiful vintage religious statue. It is a figure of the Blessed Virgin Mary holding the infant Christ. Our Lady has refined features and is shown wearing voluminous robes with beautiful flowing lines. Our Lord has His arms around her neck and has a handful of her hair in one hand, typical of any child! So Sweet.
The piece is unpainted chalkware with the makers mark on the base reading: “Original Dolfi, Made in Italy”

Her expression is both serene and joyful.The lines of this piece give it a fantastic sense of motion and flow. Wonderful.
We believe this was produced by the well known Fostoria Glass Company.

This is a wonderful pair of vintage religious statues. They are two hand carved monks at prayer. They both have a rosary at their waist, heavy white beards, and brown habits. One is kneeling while the other is sitting as they read their bibles or perhaps their breviary. Thy are highly detailed and the artist’s skill can be seen in the folds of the robes and the elegance of the lines. Made in Mexico.
Condition: They need to be cleaned.
Dimensions: 8” & 9” tall respectively on a 4” x 4.75” base
This is a poignant work of art. It is an image of Jesus wearing just before His crucifixion. His expression is profoundly sorrowful as blood drips from the Crown of Thorns. ... “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
The bust is beautifully detailed and has a rich, burnished finish. We believe this is spelter with a bronze finish. It rests on an elegant metal base.
This is a remarkable pair of vintage religious statues. It is a matching set of figures depicting the Holy Family. The Blessed Virgin Mary is shown holding a young Christ in her arms while standing on a crescent moon. Saint Joseph is shown holding a carpenter’s square in one hand and lilies, symbolizing purity, in the other. Both statues are chalkware painted in rich, vibrant colors.
The statues are set in wooden sconces that can stand alone or hang on the wall. The reverse is marked “Made in Holland”.
Condition: There are some small chips and we believe the paint has been retouched in some places. Please See Pictures.

This is a unique example of religious artwork. Each painted plaster sculpture represents the doors of one of the many beautiful churches of Quito, Ecuador. Two sculptures are signed and dated by the artist. The third has a printed history of the church written by the artist. The history tells of an earthquake and the rebuilding of the church now dedicated to Our Lady of Mercy.
Condition: There are a few chips in the plaster. Please See Pictures.
Dimensions: 14.5” tall x 11” wide and 1” deep each
This is a sweet vintage religious collectible. It is a monk playing a trumpet and clearly having a great time! His eyes are closed in concentration and his body is swaying with the music. He is wearing a full brown habit with sandaled feet peeking out at the hem. Fun!
This is a vintage statue of the Virgin Mary created in minimalist styling. Although Our Lady is shown with very little detailing, the depth of her prayer is evident in the arch of her bowed head under her large halo and the steep angle of her folded hands. The hand-carved wood has a beautiful satin finish with a subtle luster.
Condition: There are small scratches and the finish is lifting a bit at the base. Please see pictures
