A beautiful French antique statue of the Virgin Mary from Paris, engraved on the rear of the base, confirming the quality.
Of fabulous quality and beautifully timeworn from adoration. The gilding is fading, but the detail remains superb. It suddenly catches the light and gleams.
The expression on Mary's face, the detail of her rosary, the pleats of her dress and even her feet is remarkable.
There are two holes at the back which would have been used to fix her to the wall of the shrine for security.
Mary measures 20cm or 8" tall.
