This is a divine antique French Virgin Mary altar dating from the 1800's. It is made from gilded spelter and is very decorative and architectural. It would be superb as part of a religious display.
The altar has a decorative base with 4 scrolled feet. There are 4 columns which support a fabulous domed canopy with a central spire. The columns are joined by ecclesiastical gables and the dome is pierced. The attention to detail is astonishing.
In the middle of all this architectural splendour stands the Virgin Mary. Her hands are clasped together in prayer. She wears a magnificent crown and her gown falls around her in wondrous folds.
Mary and her altar are gilded. The gilding has been applied to give a two tone appearance with the natural spelter and the resultant effect is stunning.
It measures :- 18.5 cm (7.25 inches) high x 7.5 cm (3 inches) wide x 7.5 cm (3 inches) deep.
This is a fabulous religious piece to display and use and another divine antique French brocante find from La Belle Étoffe!
