Hello Again,
I've had this for a little while, he sits in a laminated shrine with a door that opens over a drawer for rosary beads,....(I think).
I had one years ago that I sold, but it was nothing like this one, this one's exquisite.
I love the painting of the figure, and the care that went into inserting the eyes, and especially love the silver scepter and halo,( It's not marked as far as I can tell, but it looks like silver, and the stones are definitely cut and not molded )
It's a precious little thing that I wanted to share,....Thanks for taking a look.
and Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
Tony.
p.s., sorry for categorizing it for it's silver ornament, I didn't know where else to put it.

    Spectacular ! is the bottom open ? To set glass eyes have to have a hole someplace as they are placed after he is made . The quality is exquisite . I also love the filigree work and cut stones . Is he plaster ?

    Hello Manikin,
    Thanks for the comment. There is a little hole on the bottom, and it's initialed. I think it's plaster. I'll remove the last photo and add a photo of the bottom, so that you can see.
    Thanks again, and Happy Thanksgiving!
    Tony.
