A Gorgeous Antique French Madonna And Child From Marseille, 1800's
This remarkable statue of the Virgin Mary is made of terracotta that was hand painted and gilded with a stunning and breathtakingly beautiful combination of gold and cobalt blue. Known in France as the Marseille's Virgin [coming from the French city of Marseille], this exceptional and rare statue is recognised by its vibrant colours and warmth that denotes to the Southern part of France. Both figures, the Virgin Mary and the baby Jesus hold flowers made of wire and fabric while standing on a cloud with two gorgeous cherubs, representing the Heavens. The statue measures approximately 37 x 13 x 9 cm or about 14.6 x 5.1 x 3.5 inches and it is in great antique condition with minor signs of ageing that in my opinion only brings forward its true beauty and splendour today. These could be seen in minor flaking on the paint and a minute chip on the bottom of the stand. It is exactly as I found it. For the full condition please refer to the images!
