B942 - Stunning Tall Antique French Plaster Religious Statue / Bust, Mary C1900
This is a divine antique French religious plaster statue of Mary dating from about 1900. She is very decorative and would make a stunning addition to any vintage display.
Our Lady is very serene and beautiful. She holds her head up as she prays. Her gown and mantle fall in soft swathes. She wears a sash in a sublime shade of duck egg blue and has a pearlised rosary draped over her arm.
On each foot is a delightful rose and around her feet are further roses with their leaves.
The plaster has a 'bisque' texture and is in an atmospheric sepia shade, against which the blue of the sash contrasts perfectly. The plaster is in good condition with one or two minor chips to the folds of the mantle and a little patination down the back.
The statue measures :- H 42 cm (16.5 inches) x W 12 cm (4.75 inches) x D 9.5 cm (3.75 inches).
A stunning and interesting piece to add an architectural feature to a religious display and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
