Collectible Religious Figure:
Collectible Vintage Religious Figure - Madonna - Virgin Mary - SyrocoWood - VERY RARE
This very rare Madonna figure is in excellent condition. There are no flaws that I can see. The Madonna is made of SyrocoWood and is an off white color. On the bottom is a sticker which reads: SyrocoWood, Syracuse, N.Y., Made in U.S.A. The Madonna figure measures 7 1/2" tall and 2 1/2" at the widest. The Madonna is from my mother’s collection which she has decided to sell.
The Syroco molding process was developed by Adolph Hostein, owner of the Syracuse Ornamental Company,in the 1890s. The material is a combination of a wood compound and casting fluids that were then poured into molds. The finished casting appears to be hand carved. The Syracuse Ornamental Company became Syroco, Inc., in the 1930s. By the 1940?s, other companies such as Multi Products were producing Syrocco products. The Syracuse Ornamental Company produced many products for the home including ashtrays, decorative architectural moldings and very sought after cork screws.
