B1531 - Stunning Antique French Gilded Spelter Virgin Mary, Madonna Religious Statue
This is a stunning antique French statue of the Virgin Mary dating from the early 1900's. It would have been bought as a souvenir of a visit to Lourdes. It is made from gilded spelter and is very decorative and architectural. It would be superb as part of a religious display.
Mary stands on a splendid ecclesiastical architectural podium. It has pillars to the corners which are joined by decorative crested archways. There is a scene of the Rosary Basilica to the front and a gilded cross to the back each with a charming winged cherub to their base. There are 4 gilded feet.
Upon 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 podium are gilded. The gilding has been applied to give a two tone appearance with the natural spelter and the resultant effect is stunning.
The statue measures :- 25 cm (9.75 inches) high x 7 cm (2.75 inches) wide x 7 cm (2.75 inches) deep.
This is a fabulous religious piece to display and another divine antique French brocante find from La Belle Étoffe!
