Religious Carving by Bloch

Regular price €135

A wonderful French antique religious sculpture signed Bloch made of hand carved meerschaum. The wall carving features two beautiful angels around a cross and holding the banner "Je vous salue Marie" meaning "Hail Mary". The devotional piece dates from the Napoleon III period, late 19th century. The angels sculpture is really detailed and realistic. It is based on a black velvet fabric.

This sculpture used to be framed but is still beautiful simply like this. Please take a close look at the photos, they are an integral part of the description. The fabric was replaced.
