Item/Description: Vintage ca 1950s-1970s Japan “Madonna and Child” Christian religion-themed figural planter.
The charming imagery depicted by this ceramic sculptural planter is that of the beautiful Holy Mother/Blessed Virgin Mary sweetly and lovingly holding the small “Baby Jesus” Christ child in her arms.
The colors utilized to ornament this exquisitely lovely decorative hand-painted religious objet d'art are a scrumptiously vivid yet soothing array of powder blue, butter cream, peachy red, and snowy white.
This stunning artistic interpretation of “The Holy Mother with Child” is also highly glazed and elegantly gilt-accented.

Material(s)/Format: Gilded porcelain/ceramic/china
Size/Measurements: 6"H x 4 & ½"W x nearly 3 & 1/4"Deep
Quantity: One (1)
Condition Summary: Near mint, retaining exceptionally vivid coloration, high gloss finish and exhibiting no nicks, chips, cracks, breaks, crazing, paint loss or repairs! Being noted for purposes of accuracy (this is a from-the-factory issue and is NOT a flaw) is the presence of a tiny blue dot on the right side of the bridge of her nose, in between her eye and nose. Additionally, what appears to be a faint black line running down vertically beneath her chin is also NOT a flaw or mark on the statue. Rather, it is a bit of stray “plush stuffed animal faux fur” that we overlooked removing while we were photographing her (prior to being photographed, she had been stored away in a box where she was surrounded by stuffed animals for “cushioning protection purposes” during a house/business relocation move).
