Offering for sale a lovely and old miniature of the Virgin Mary and Infant Jesus, of Raphael's Madonna of the Table, one of the most popular of the Madonna art. This is a miniature, but we think it is printed on something synthetic, and then hand embellished on the front. We think it is not totally hand painted as when opened, we can see the back side, check out our last photo, and the image is visible on the back. Not conclusive of course, and we do not at all see any dots on the front that would represent a print, but as this is so small, we are going with a transfer type printing with hand embellishment. Regardless, the workmanship is wonderful, a very artistic and lovely impression of this famous work, in beautiful colors and detail. The art is 1 & 1/2" tall., and is under glass, surrounded by brass, all mounted on a larger frame of ivorine material with faux tortoise sides; notice the sides have splayed away from the wooden frame base. All of this can be re-glued if you desired, we always liked it fine the way it is. The total size is 3 & 5/8" by 3 & 1/8". A very lovely miniature that makes a beautiful statement at a great affordable price.
