Huge Italian Madonna and Infant Bisque High Relief Plaque w/Cherubs
Up for sale is a gorgeous religious plaque. I was told this came from a high end estate in Virginia. It features a Madonna or virgin Mary and a baby. There are cherubs frolicking around the ends of the frame. It is extremely delicate and has some minor losses - missing the hand of one cherub, the wing of another cherub and a chip to the hand of a third cherub, otherwise everything looks great! The detail is amazing. It is large and heavy, measuring 14" x 8 3/4" x 3" deep. It is marked Italy Works of Art and it also appears to say Madonna with some numbers underneath. There is an artist signature but I cannot make it out. The plaque cold use a cleaning but it is so delicate I didn't want to risk it and will leave that up to the new owner. This has the quality look of the artist Borsato but that does not appear to be what the signature says.
Please no overseas shipping on this item due to the weight and delicacy.
