A lovely old devotional piece. This is a small icon to be hung, a beautifully carved Pieta of meerschaum or a dense chalk. Very detailed and deeply dimensional, set under glass in an oval brass bezel. I had a hard time photographing this so please see all the photos for details. 2 3/8″ tall x 1 7/8 and in good old condition.
