Exquisite French Saints or Madonna Crown dates to 1840. This is a fine and very pretty gilt crown. In Europe, most Madonnas and Saints displayed in churches are adorned with beautiful crowns, and occasionally they make it to the secondary market. Ornate and embellished with clear, red, pink and green faceted glass stones.
Brilliant and sparkling, this small size is quite rare to find in today's market. A fabulous addition to your collection of religious crowns, a stunning example of religious decorative art from 19th century France. The crown was made open in the back so that it can fit several sizes.
