A vintage personal, one panel, icon of the Madonna and the Christ Child in Florentine style frame from the 1970s.
Great Christmas present for a collector.
Entire piece measures: 4-7/8 inches X 4 inches. This is a small, miniature retablo style piece, that is ideal for use as a personal icon.
The image is a facsimile of an old master's painting on wood. A soulful Mother Mary embraces the smiling Infant Christ. He holds what appears to be a scroll.
Looking with a loupe, I can tell that the picture is a lithograph. There are intentional crackle lines on the entire image. These are likely on the original painting. This is in a dusky blue wood frame with gold highlighting. This frame is set on a shelf with the same decoration.
The back is plain wood. There are no marks or country of origin on this piece. I believe it is from the 1970s and is a Florentine piece. Many of these pieces had foil stickers.
Condition is above excellent with no cracks or damage to the wood. There are two tiny white dots of misprint to the lithograph.
