This is the most stunning large wax Jesus I have ever seen. He is circa 1860's and is all original including his wooden crib. He is a large wax doll measuring 23 inches in length. He has beautiful glass blue eyes indicating that he was of some quality. Unfortunately he has suffered damage over the years to mainly his arms and fingers. He is missing some of his hair and the wax has darkened with age. He comes complete with his original wooden crib that has the original paint and Latin script. He is laid on a bed of hay and hessian but I may have to remove this to post him abroad as it is an organic material and may be restricted by customs. He comes dressed in an original dark red velvet robe decorated with gold bullion trim and a lamb of God motif, it is beautifully ornate and comes with two lace cuffs, one of which does have a red stain to it. He also has a brass crown with stars on it. He is very rare and beautiful and would be perfect displayed at Christmas. If you require any further pictures please do contact me as I am restricted as to how many I can put on the listing. The wax Jesus measures 23 inches in height and the crib 27.5 inches long by 11.5 inches wide by 8 inches in height.
