Very Rare, Terracotta Mold of Saint Thérèse for Making Wax Effigies


This very rare terracotta mold of Saint Thérèse was used to make wax effigies of the saint. It is from France, circa late 1800s, and has the following inscription on the back, which I've translated here:

Mold which was used for the wax casting of the effigy of Saint Therese at the Carmel of [unknown] and which had been abandoned when it closed in 1902.

The mold measures approximately 9 cm x 7.5 cm.

Please let me know if you need more photos as I'll be happy to oblige.

Thank you for looking.
