This rare, antique, wax offering depicting a silk and paper rendering of the Virgin Mary, floral decorations (Her flower is the lily.), and other wax embellishments surrounding the Virgin dates from the Napoleon III period to perhaps 1900. It is from Germany and has "Schutzmarke Registrirt" (Registered Trademark) surrounding an elaborate illustration on the paper adorning the lid of the box. The paper also has a decorative border. The designation Seidenbild means "silk."The circular ½ with symbol denotes the weight of the piece.
Please examine the photos carefully and do let me know if you need more photos as I will be happy to oblige.
Please note the Virgin's halo is missing a piece and the slight bend at the bottom of her gown. While the decorations do have wear commensurate with age and storage, it is in very good condition.
The paper lace adorning the interior of the box, which measures 9 cm x 17 cm x 3.9 cm, is crumbling and in a poor state.
The box is in fair condition with some staining, discoloration and significant wear.
The wax is in good condition with little wear but does have bits of debris stuck to the back from the crumbling lace and being encased in the box.
Thank you for looking.
