French 19th Century Carved and Painted Religious Statue
Dimensions: 19 5/8″H x 7 3/4″W x 6 1/2″D
A lovely, wooden female religious statue, carved and painted, that dates back to the early part of the 19th century, France. This statue was likely housed in a reliquary: there is a place to affix a gilt crown atop the lady’s head as well as some gold gilt that has remained over the years. Today, the antique may look quite different than its original form, but is just as (if not more) charming as ever. c.1830.
