Coil Built Clay Mother and Baby, Presumed South American

Regular price $50.00

I am not entirely certain the origins of this one; I believe South American, and might guess Brazilian. A very Madonna-esque mother for sure, with wonderful face and bell-like, coil built skirt painted with excellent stripes. And what a lucky baby, cradled in yellow blanket between her joined hands and very large busom, gazing up at her. Another one that would make a great gift for a mother, I'd say, and to my eye just a charming piece, awkward in all the right ways.

8 5/8” t x 3 7/16 w and d at base and in very good condition, no issues. Later 20th c. I believe.
