"Virgin Mary In Faience Of Nevers Late 18th Century"Virgo devotion very widespread in populary and rural homes. Protector of men, but also that of winemakers, fishermen, cooks. Often brought into the countryside by hawkers she was also invoked for other protections such as harvesting. The same colors as are often repeated in other regions, from cooking "at large fire" they are mainly limited to yellow, blue and manganese. The cape is generally blue, the crown yellow; only the motives change according to the regions. This one is native of Nevers for its dress particularly decorated and remains in perfect state of conservation. She wears a jagged crown, the child Jesus on his left puts an arm on his chest. View by Mrs. Aline Josserand expert in faience, porcelain and ceramics. To note: not to be confused with the Virgin called "of birth" which has a small hole in the bottom of the crown to pour some holy water in the statuette. Free delivery for metropolitan France.
