19th Century French Carving of Madonna & Child

$190.00

19th Century French Carving of Madonna & Child

$190.00

This is a superb example of devotional art popular in France in the 1800s. This particular piece is an intricately carved scene of the Blessed Virgin Mary holding a young Christ in her lap. The artist’s skill is evident in the fine detail he included in the elaborately carved chair; Our Lady’s hair and beautiful robes; and the expressions on both faces. It is framed in painted wood with a domed glass cover.

Please note: The material used in carvings from this period is often mistakenly referred to as Meerschaum, but most are actually made of French pipeclay.

 

Condition: There is a repaired crack on one side of the carving. Please see pictures.

Dimensions: 10" tall x 5" wide x 1.25" deep
