Beautiful cabinet with statue of Our Lady and Infant Jesus.
The statue is marked 'Notre dame de Sous Terre'.
It is a plaster reproduction of a statue in Chartres cathedral.
Painted with gold paint that has corroded and turned green in places. Beautiful time patina!
Several breaks have been painted in brown so are not very obvious ( crown or foot of Jesus for instance)

The cabinet has been repainted by a previous owner in light grey. The inside is blue with gold stars.
The cross part at the top doesn't seem to be the original.
Glass on the 3 open sides of the cabinet.
Closes with a small loop and hook on one side.
Metal loop at back to hang on the wall (it is not standing right though).

Statue: 19.8 cm / 7.48" height. Base is approx. 9 x 8 cm / 3.54 x 3.14"
Cabinet not including cross: 38 x 30.5 x 17.2 cm / 14.96 x 11.81 x 6.69"
Removable cross decoration at top : 11.3 cm / 4.33"

Marks, dents, breaks, chips to the paint and imperfections commensurate with age and use.
