Art Deco FRENCH Crib Protector - Celluloid, Raphael, Cupid, Putti, Angel, Christening

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer....

AGE: Anywhere from C.1910 to C.1930

ITEM: From France, here's a celluloid baby crib protector featuring a center panel (gold tone metal) depicting Raphael's famous design of a Cherub - Putti - Angel - Cupid. With beading around the inner edge, the outer edge is nicely beveled.

This type of religious item would have been purchased and given to the parents of a newborn. It would then be attached to the baby's crib (or hung on a wall) so that no harm would come to the infant while he/she slept. While many families could afford French Dieppe Croix de Berceau, a crib cross/crib crosses hand carved and embellished with the 3D face/head of an angel, the common folk could only afford celluloid or even "of lesser value" pieces. This particular item would probably have been purchased at a mid price range as the detailing is so wonderful.

CONDITION: Very nice with no burn marks or discoloration to the celluloid. There is, however, a fine hairline at the back of piece (left) and a few flea bites along the back edge; just from plain old age I suspect. Clean, crisp stamp of the angel at the center.

METAL CONTENT: Gold Tone Metal? Base metal with a gold wash? I honestly don't know the exact material.

HALLMARKS: None that I can find - not even on the center panel.

SIZE: From top ring to bottom measures 4-1/4"; width is 3". A little larger than the other crib ornament I have on offer.

FINAL COMMENTS: I must admit I added the pink bow to the top but I can switch it to blue if desired.

Anyone want?
