Superb vintage chalkware Infant of Prague statue with gorgeous green velvet vestment lined in a yellow satiny silk fabric, edged in gold trim and embellished with gold cutout shapes. Blue eyes and near perfect face.

Stands approximately 13 inches tall with a 3 inch base.

Some small chipped areas of paint on hands, head and orb. Some brown staining on interior of vestments and near the gold cutout shapes themselves-- looks like reverse imprints of the gold cutout shapes (see photos). Appear to have been small rhinestones near cutout shapes. Could use a gentle cleaning.

This statue is a replica of the original Infant of Prague which is displayed for people to venerate in the church of Our Lady of Victory in the Lesser Town district of Prague. People come from all over the world every day to pray for help, healing, or peace. The sweet face of the Child Jesus attracts visitors through its beauty. The right hand of the child is raised in blessing, while his left hand holds a sphere surmounted by a cross – the whole of our universe rests in his hands

Please note that as a vintage item, my pieces may not be in perfect condition, since that is generally the nature (and charm) of vintage. I will describe the item to the best of my ability, but I am not an expert in any vintage category. All items sold in as-is condition. Please look at photos carefully and email me with any questions before purchasing to avoid any misunderstandings. My home is smoke-free, and all items are kept in a pet-free storage area.

If I have overestimated your shipping costs I will always reimburse you anything over $1, but please note I always use USPS, delivery confirmation, and I insure anything over $30.
