Lovely old religious art, a carving of what we believe is French Pipe Clay, a soft slightly porous material often used for art carvings and pipes in the late 1800's. Often referred to as Meerschaum, but probably not the same material. This one is beautiful, a deeply carved cameo of an angel holding Jesus Pieta style under the old bubble glass in the old black frame believed to be original, with hanging loop on top. It is 5 & 1/8" by 6 & 1/4" and in very good condition. We have not opened this for inspection for fear of damaging the piece. We used to find these pieces fairly often, but they are becoming quite rare as so many people now collect them. This is one of the nicest ones we have had.
