Antique 19thC French Christian Shadowbox, Birth of Jesus, Meerschaum
A lovely antique French shadowbox depicting the Birth of Jesus Christ. The scene is hand carved from Meerschaum or a composition material and dated from the late 1800s, it is beautifully executed with excellent attention to detail. It is most likely a souvenir from the Grand Tour. The Carving is in a shadowbox frame and is complete with bubble glass, someone added a pretty piece of fabric to the back. Overall dimensions are 7" x 6 1/8" x 1" deep. The Carved scene is in good overall condition for it's age and fragile nature. The carving has a chip on the bottom edge under the scene itself. The frame has a split on the top, overall wear to the finish and dust underneath the glass, see photos. The Carving would make a lovely addition to an antique devotional collection.
