French antique wax baby Jesus from the late 19th or very early 20th century.
These were usually made by nuns.

The doll itself is in very good condition for its age. The face, legs and arms are made of wax. The rest of the body is made of fabric and some stuffing.
He is wearing a beautiful hand made silky dress with lace details.
There are breaks on the fingers of one hand as can be seen in the photographs. Small marks and scratches but nothing too serious.

It is placed on a decor made of paper and glued sand, shells etc. Signs of wear and small tears as can be seen in the photographs.

It is attached to wooden base that is scratched in some places. It would have been under a glass dome but that was sadly lost a long time ago.

Total height: 34 cm / 13.38 inches
Base: 35.5 x 17 cm / 13.77 x 6.69 inches
Length of baby Jesus approx. : 29 cm / 11.4 inches
