We are proud to present you this magnificent Italian Baroque Statue of Jesus' foster father with the Christ Child. Both Joseph and Jesus have amazing movement in their clothing and appear almost real with their magnificently carved details. The sculpture was approximately made by the end of the 18th Century. The amazing glass eyes featured in both - father and son - make them appear incredibly natural. All pieces, but the glass eyes and metal halos, are out of wood.
The Sculpture is in good condition. It has a beautiful patina and comes un-restored with its original Polychrome and Gilt finish. The little Jesus Child is missing parts of some of his hands. It appears that parts were repainted in former times. Around the same time the two halos and the lowest part of the base was added (just the bottom part with the black finish). (PLEASE SEE PICTURES).
It is circa 19 1/2 Inches tall by 7 Inches wide and 5 1/2 Inches in depth.
