Here we have an Art Deco era sculpture made in an earthenware or stoneware (terra cotta) of Madonna and child signed and dated by the artist. She is seated with the child in her arms and stands about 13" tall. She is partially glazed in areas and is in excellent vintage condition with an old repair on her foot and tiny glaze chips around that area and some minute fleabites but nothing that distracts.
It is signed by the artist and dated '44 and the artist looks like J Courtens (?) and above the signature is the word ASTRA (?). We are pretty sure she is French or Belgian. She has the classic face for an Art Deco pottery figurine.
