Exceptional Antique Vieux Paris or Old Paris statue depicting Madonna with Child Christ. Both the Holy Virgin and Jesus feature stunning hand painted details, and lovely serene facial expressions. This Madonna figure dates to the mid 19th century. This is one of the best I've ever been able to obtain, incredibly well preserved for the age.
Old Paris porcelain refers to the ornately decorated gilt porcelain created in and around Paris by more than 30 different factories from the mid-18th century through 1870. This is a special one, Mary wears a gown touched with hand painted gilt detailing, and a crown of flowers on her head. Two of the little gold flowers have a piece missing. Fine quality, I was fortunate to be able to obtain three Madonnas of this collector's quality on our last buying trip. A rare to find gem for your collection.
