Item Details

French relief carved meerschaum plaque depicting St. Francis with various beasts surrounding him
Encased in a copper surround with a small ring hanger, this would originally have had a glass front to it which is long lost
The subject matter on this one is charming with the inclusion of animals adding interest to the religious element
Meerschaum is a natural mineral deposit composed of fossilized shells from ancient sea life that have collected and compressed over millions of years. It lends itself well to carving
These small religious carvings make an intriguing and interesting wall feature
