A fabulous antique French white metal statue of the Madonna and her Babe - both wearing crowns, and dating to circa 1890. The statue is beautifully embossed with cupid motifs, sacred heart etc. The statue stands on a delightfully timeworn wood and velvet plinth (the statue and plinth are two separate parts). The statue is 16cms high (6.3 inches) and the plinth measures 14cms x 14cms x 8cms high (5.5 inches x 5.5 inches x 3.1 inches high). No damage to the statue. The plinth is in good condition, with age-related rubbing to the velvet. This is perfect for a Christmas display - so evocative.
