This is an unusual little religious Quimper / French pottery figurine. It is one of a small group of antique figures made in France that I have available in the online Iconic Edinburgh shop. 

Quimper Faience (tin-glazed pottery) was produced near Quimper in Brittany in France. The pottery was first established in 1708. The decoration is all painted by hand. 

It is a little miniature figure of the Virgin Mary / Madonna. She holds a chubby baby Jesus in her arms - he holds a little orb in his hand.

She is shown wearing an emerald green headdress and long cloak. Her dress is stippled with a rust-coloured spongeware decoration. Her robe is edged with yellow and she stands on a blue mottled plinth base.

She is very naively modelled - and is also a little chubby in form. The Virgin has a crown on her head - which is hollow and would enable you to use this model as a candlestick at Christmas. There are no air holes on this figure - and it could also function as a little vase or bottle. 

The pottery is a light brown clay and the tin-glaze has a grey-blue shade to it

This is certainly an attractive and slightly quirky model; perfect for your display cabinet. 

The figure measures 7 3/4 inches in height. It is all hand-painted - and it is totally delightful.

A genuine piece dating to the late 19 century / early 20th century

It is unsigned - so hard to assess which Quimper factory or maker was involved in the production of this one. 

It is in perfect antique condition with no damages - a couple of little nibbles to the peaks of her crown - but quite acceptable given her age, but that is the only issue. 

HAPPY TO POST INTERNATIONALLY, PLEASE ASK FOR POSTAGE COSTS OUTSIDE OF THE UK.
