B490 - SOLD
This is a very pretty antique French religious diorama dating from the mid 1900's. It would have been bought as a souvenir from a religious pilgrimage to Lourdes. It is very decorative and would make a lovely addition to any vintage French display.
The image on the back of the diorama is of Our Lady of Lourdes in the Grotto. Before her is Marie- Bernadette Soubirous to whom she appeared in 1858. The scene is depicted in lovely detail and colour.
All of this is covered with domed glass and held in an round metal frame. There is a loop at the back of the frame for hanging on a hook or threading through with ribbon. It is all in good condition.
The diorama measures 9 cm in diameter.
A pretty and interesting piece for any vintage French display and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!

Please note that these dioramas are very difficult to photograph and the light from our chandeliers is reflected in the domed glass.
