Exceptional Antique Vieux Paris or Old Paris statue depicting Madonna with Child Christ. Both the Holy Virgin and Jesus feature stunning hand painted details. This Madonna figure dates to the mid 19th century, I particular love the Christ child's articulated leg and foot which is "away" and almost never found. 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, incredibly, there is no wear to the gilt, this is from a serious collector who kept this in a cabinet. 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.
