A spectacular bejeweled Santos crown, it would have adorned a statue of the Virgin Mary. It originates from the south of France where it was part of a small religious collection. From the period of Napoleon III, it dating towards 1870.

The gilded brass form is simple yet elegant. The band is formed from two gilded brass filet bands which form the channel for the 35 glass stones (bezel set). The gilded brass bands have molded designs: egg and dart and fine rope. Two large and very life like leaves are set into two large arabesques. The gilded brass leaves have pronounced veins and very curvaceous edges. Each arabesque is set with 15 small to medium bezel set glass stones. A central flower sits atop the intersection of the arabesques. A very large (1/2") bevel cut glass stone is surrounded by 1/4 " glass stones. The front panel tilts at an angle to give extra viewing importance when placed on a statue.The band has five notches for sizing.

It measures: 3 1/2" in diameter (first notch) to 3 3/4" in diameter (last notch). It is 2 1/4" high at the center. It is in very good condition.

Small authentic antique crowns such as this have almost disappeared from today's antique market. It is a fine example which has the ambience of a quiet and sacred place.
