Impressive French faience model of the crowned Virgin holding the child dating from the mid 17th century. This tall statue ( height 47 cm) is decorated in " compendario" style with yellow, blue and manganese depicting flowers and tulips on the drape. It is not easy to come across such large and early pieces.
The base has been professionally restored ( a piece of about 2 inches was missing near her right foot) and the crown has been retouched.
A similar example can be found in: " la Faience de Nevers" by Jean Rosen, pag 98 fig.73.
