Old Antique 19th Century Fine Folk Art Primitive Diorama With Oil Painting &wood:
Up for sale here is a wonderfully made antique circa mid to late 19th century folk art diorama depicting a Religious scene. The diorama is made of what looks like maybe carved polychromed wood and or plaster figures, oil painting for the sides and background and other various materials. The piece is framed under its old original glass. The piece measures 12 1/4 inches high by 9 3/4 inches across by 3 inches deep. There is no signature on the piece though there are some numbers in pencil on the back. We think that this piece is American made though these pieces were also popular in Europe. As for condition, there is a large break from the frame missing in the lower right. The old red velvet is also worn off completely. One finger on the Jesus figure is missing but the rest of the figures and items inside the diorama seem to be intact. The finish is also missing on most of the frame.For its age, though the work itself has held up quite well. This work comes from the estate of Loretta Howard Sturgis, who inherited this piece from her Mother , well known artist and Creche Nativity figurine collector Loretta Hines Howard. The subject matter of this piece would have fit perfectly in her collection. We have lots of other items from the estate currently listed in our store. Thank you very much for checking out our store.
