B904 - SOLD
This is a divine petite antique French religious wall mount dating from about 1900.
It is in the form of a round pendant suspended on a beautiful hanging. The hanging has a gorgeous repoussé brass bow and ribbon tail crest from which two flower garlands fall.
The pendant is made of alabaster and has a brass surround with tied ribbon detail. In the centre of the alabaster is a bronze medallion with the image of Jesus Christ bearing the sacred burning heart. It is cast in wonderful detail. The medallion has a tiny signature which I can just make out as G. Barrollet.
The brass on the hanging is still golden with a lovely buttery hue, while the medallion has mellowed to a more subtle tone.
On the back of the bow is a loop for hanging.
The wall mount measures :- 15.5 cm ( 6 inches) high x 8.5 cm ( 3.5 inches) wide.
This is an exquisitely pretty religious piece to display and enjoy and another divine antique French brocante find from La Belle Étoffe!
