1850th Antique Wood Carved Polychrome Statue Mary And Jesus Clothes Silver Crown:
we are selling the entire collection of religious items we bought directly from the estate from a retired priest in France.
in the next weeks you gonna see some very interesting pieces
this is one of the best pieces of the collection, it is a statue of Virgin Mary with Jesus on her arm, it is large for this type of statues 24" high. on a paper i did find on this staue was written that it came from a nunnery in Avignon; but i can not confirm it, it is for sure not one that was made for standing on a shelf inside a home ,this realy belonged to a catholic institution, but it is difficult to find out what exactly
you can find similar mostly smaller figures in this style, but they are always from the 1950ths and later, and are made for private houses, mostly you find them under a plastic or glass dome, this are in fact copys from the statue that is listed here
wonderful on this statue is that it so complete, i can not find any missing piece, Mary wears a necklace in the shape of pearls, wears a crown, i think this is silver, there are no marks on it but for silver that was made for churches, many times it was nort marked or signed.
in her hand she hold a scepter with avm for ave maria, also she keeps a piece with a pigeon shaped broche, in the other hand there is baby jesus, he also wears a crown in the same style silver as mary, Jesus is also made in wood.
the mantel and all the clothes she wears are in my opinion original to this statue, the mantel ismade in a typical old very soft material, i have no idea about the right name for it
Mary and Jesus are both carved in wood, jesus the complete body, mary just for a part
in the dress there are nice embroied parts in gold threat, see the pictures for details or ask for more pictures and i shall send them
the clothes are very dusty , and specific the dress of Jesus is very fragile and damaged, so it needs a very good clean and if neceserry a restoration, otherwise it is very decorative as it is,
it is for sure a very nice statue with a lare history, very hard to get, certainly the last 20 years since all propertys of churches and cotholic institutions in Europe are all listed up and mostly they come never for sale
