Today we are offering this beautiful antique Neapolitan Creche Figure. She stands 8.5" tall. She is made of terracotta and has molded blond hair. Her hands are open with splayed fingers. She wears her original outfit, which over the years has faded and become dirty. The silk on her dress does have some breaks in it. Her body is made of a wire armature covered in hemp. She has glass eyes and a very soulful expression. I believe she represents a peasant woman. Please note that her two lower legs do not match in color. One is lighter than the other.
Even with her flaws, she is quite a beauty and would make a nice addition to your Creche.
