A ceramic Baby Jesus, from the renowned “El Renacimiento” workshop in Olot, Spain (see photo of mark).
No cracks, no damage at all, which is amazing considering how delicate and refined the hands and fingers are, right down to the fingernails! The colors are subtle and beautiful, and I can’t quite capture them in the photos: rosy cheeks and upper body, expressive glass eyes and a cherubic smile.
I have had this old, finely crafted piece for about 30 years and looking at similar pieces they seem to date from the fifties..
It didn’t have a crown when I got it, and I made one from gold-plated silver.
This baby could use a light, careful cleaning. I haven’t wanted to touch it, because I like the patina.
Baby measures 9” from head to toe 6” and 4” across.
