This is an adorable vintage religious statue. It is the figure of a rosy cheeked monk holding a book, likely chanting the Divine Office. He is tonsured and wearing a monk’s hooded robe with a rope belt and sandals. His expression is intent and serene with his eyes closed, his brows lifted, and his mouth open in song. The piece is white with a rich, lustrous glaze and gold detailing.
This is a striking vintage madonna. The Blessed Virgin Mary is shown as a young woman wearing a beautiful veil framing her face with many soft folds. Our lady is elegantly poised with her head slightly bowed, her eyes lowered, and her palms together in adoration.
This piece is ceramic painted to look like wood. There reverse has the original tag indicating that was handmade in Germany.
This is a beautiful vintage carving. It is an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary holding a young Christ. Our Lady’s eyes are closed and her head bowed as she leans in the embrace Our Lord. Absolutely gorgeous.

This is an elegant vintage religious statue. It is a tall, slim monk holding a candle. His head is bowed in prayer and his expression is humble. The artist has used minimal detailing and long flowing lines to give this piece a sense of motion. One can imagine this monk waking for Matins on a cold winter night to pray the Divine Office.
The piece is signed by the artist.
Condition: There are some light scratches. Please see pictures.
