Lovely antique altar art or icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary, hand painted on porcelain, and in her original frame. This is a fabulous presentation, with ornate brass metalwork with cross at top, and Mary enclosed behind matching doors, just beautiful. The workmanship on this piece is very fine, and although unsigned the painting of Mary is of the finest quality. This piece is in overall very good condition; there was originally an easel stand on the back now gone, many times these were removed as they got in the way when hanging the item on a wall. The overall measurement is 11 & 1/2" tall by 7 & 1/4" wide; with the porcelain art measuring 3 & 5/8" tall as exposed. Truly beautiful colors and details. We have found quite a few fine paintings on porcelain of Mary over the years, but never such a magnificent presentation.
