Mid century copy of Saint Mary the Blessed Virgin with the Christ child
After Raphael by Hanfstangel (1808-1877)
It is in a green and painted gold frame and has damage to both bottom corners where it looks like it has been dropped. There is a dent on Mary's dress and generally it shows its age. It was probably not a hugely expensive icon when it was originally purchased.
However, it has an undeniable charm, which is why I'm offering it for sale. This picture has been cherished and revered. An object always bears the traces of its past and this has a great warmth and this has that warmth in abundance.
The picture measures 31cmx25cm 12"x 10" approximately
