This is a fine example of devotional art popular in France in the 1800s. This particular piece is an intricately carved image of Christ with a radiant halo and a chalice in his hands. The artist’s skill is evident in the fine details seen in Christ’s halo and robes, and His sorrowful expression.
Please note: The materials used in such carvings are often mistakenly referred to as Meerschaum. In fact, most are made of French Pipeclay.
Condition: The frame has a crack and some chipped paint. The carving also has a barely noticeable crack along Christ’s left shoulder. Please see pictures
