Stunning Antique French Glass Dome Vitrine, inside is a poured wax Christ Child dressed in a cream silk gown, resting on a pillow surrounded by a band of wax flowers interspersed with glass and silver beads. The back of the vitrine has cream white velvet, wax floral bouquets and silver beaded leaves. This display is much like the traditional Cadeau De Naissance hand made by nuns, but I don't believe it is one of those, I believe this is a piece lovingly made by someone of faith to display in her own home, or perhaps it is a memorial to a child.
The domed wood vitrine display case is edged in ormolu floral filigree, with scrolled Louis XV feet, it has the original glass. the wax figural piece wears has silk mohair curls, and a sweet hand painted face. A fabulous addition to your religious collection of Madonnas, relics and artifacts. Absolutely beautiful and quite rare to find. Measures: 9-1/4" x 6-1/2" x 7-3/4"h.
