Beautiful Painted Terra Cotta Portuguese Baby Girl Santos with Glass Eyes!
This beautiful little baby santos is signed 'Made in Portugal' on the side and impressed on the bottom with a 'P' She is draped in a soft pink top and dark pink base. She has strawberry blond hair with ringlets....One is painted on the forehead too! There is much chipping to the paint but I think this just added to it's allure! Look at those sweet cupids bow lips!
I was told she came from a church. She looks worthy to me!
She would fit very nicely into a cherub collection. A must have for the shabby chic lover, just add a jeweled crown!!!
She can watch over you on your nightstand as she did for me, hands wrapped in antique rosaries! She makes a great display!
