Sweet Vintage Italian Gilt Florentine Madonna Altar, made of wood covered in gesso and gilded and decorated by hand. This is one of the older ones, meant to be a devotional altar to the Virgin Mother.
There is wear to the gilt, the corners are bumped, and the collector I bought it from repainted one top corner. She is a beautiful reminder of faith, love, and eternal beauty. The two little doors close all the way. Display her with a candle and flowers. Not for the perfectionist, the paint has patina, and aging.
