This is an exquisite small antique reverse painting on glass depicting the Madonna holding the Christ Child and the young St. John the Baptist looks up at Christ.

The beautiful Madonna is wearing a white veil, gold shawl, and rose dress with blue drapery around her skirt. She has a faint halo over her head. She is holding Christ standing in her lap. He is wearing only a small loose swath of white cloth. He is looking downward towards St. John.
