This beautiful religious art piece of Madonna and Child is made from gilt copper wrap over plaster. It has been treasured and displayed in our family’s home for years.
Our parents purchased this decades ago in an antique shop. The label and an envelope containing a description of the inspiration for the piece are still attached. See photo of back of piece for label, and see additional photo of paper included in the envelope which describes the inspiration for the piece. As noted on the label, the age is estimated to be approximately one hundred years old. At the time our parents purchased the item, the antique store had priced the item at $495.
Despite the age, the item is in excellent condition. There are no visible blemishes on the front besides a beautiful patina reflecting the age of the piece. The sides and back are in excellent condition. The only visible blemish is minor on one side measuring approximately 1/4” — see close up picture.
The piece is nearly perfectly round, measuring 8.5” wide x 8.75” tall. The maximum depth is approximately 2”. The piece has significant heft, weighing approximately 4 pounds. There is a metal hanging hook at the top of the piece.
