This incredible Antique French "Corona" or Crown, is of a large size, to originally be installed on the Large Figure of the Virgin Mary. Produced during the 1860's.
The size is approx. 5" diameter, and is adjustable downward from that size...the front of the Crown is approx. 3.5" high, and it is in excellent condition.
Made of Gold Gilt or Dore' on Brass, with a multitude of Clear & Colored "Stones" or "Brilliants", and a large central double ring of clear Brilliants surrounding a large "Topaz" colored Stone. To each side is a "Heart" lying sideways, and a few small Leaves.
This is the large size of a group of Antique Coronas that I will be listing today, from a wonderful collection of Religious Artifacts we discovered on our last trip to the South of France...please view the others, some with clear & colored stones and Tremblers....
