Lovely old French pipe clay small cameo, probably carved, possibly cast, old and original. This one is the Virgin Mary holding the Infant Jesus, of of the "Our Lady" varieties, very French, from France, both are crowned, these small ones are hard to photograph with the bubble glass. It measures 2 & 7/8" tall, brass frame around, glass intact, the pipe clay in good condition, original back unopened. It is missing the top loop, one can of course be glued on the top or the back. These pipe clay religious pieces are becoming very difficult to find. this is the last of our small ones to be listed and all the others sold quickly when we made them available. Photos do not show the detail very well due to the glass, it is a beautiful piece.
