19th century Flemish or German santos figure of St. Joseph with the Infant Christ. The figure has been beautifully carved, gessoed, and polychrome painted. Saint Joseph is holding the infant who has an orb with a cross in His hand. He stands 10.0" high. As is usual, there is slight paint loss and crazing to the gesso---all which gives it the wonderful patina we love to see. The piece was found in Germany along with another similar santos, probably by the same artist . Please take a look at item #8154 for Madonna and Christ Child. They present well together and make a wonderful display.
