Click image for detail

Exceptionally fine antique Wax Madonna & Child in the original display case, from a French Catholic church, dating to the late 1700's, very, very early 1800's . Encased in a wood case, the Madonna and Child are elegantly dressed, their original costume gowns of silk and cotton, embellished with gold bullion trims, hand made French lace, silver metalic tassels, and other stunning antique pieces. Each wears a metal holy crown, the Virgin Mary holds a sceptor, wears a glass beaded cross and holds a rosary over one arm. Her hair is made of braided silver metallic pieces, divine!

The most amazing millinery flower arch covers them, with feathers covered in hand painted blue dots,  each side planted in Old Paris porcelain urns. Three sides have the original glass, the back panel is covered in blue paper. The left side panel has a crack from long ago. You can have this replaced or leave the original glass in there. Decorative large pieces like this rarely come on the market, as often the wax figures are damaged over the centuries. This one is stunning, with wear consistent with age. An amazing addition to your religious collection. Sold in as found condition. Will need to be delivered via blanketwrap {invoiced seperately}

  • Measures: 27" x 14~3/4" x 9~1/2".
