arrived today....


Look at what has arrived today.....

I am afraid that my photos do not do her justice and the charger for my camera is on the blink so I have had to borrow French Boyfriend's until the new charger arrives.



It is rare nowdays to find a statue of the Virgin Mary  that is not broken so this antique statue is a rarity and a stunning object.

A close up of her lovely face, so serene .....
 

I love the deatils on the base....



She is made from white porcelain "biscuit" and dates from the late 1880's, circa Napoléon III and is in perfect condition.

Très bonne journée à toutes et tous, Leeann x

  1. Leeann If I weren't still covering looming medical bills I would order this from you in a snap. I adore this Blessed Virgin Mary with the Christ Child.
