This well-worn Antique Sculpture of the Madonna, Our Lady of Lourdes, dates to 1920 and has been around the block a few times. Crafted entirely in metal, this Antique Madonna Sculpture shows her age with surface rust and pitting to the finish. However, in our opinion, this Madonna's shabby chic appearance just makes her beautiful in our eyes.
As it is often difficult to determine the exact composition of metal objects due to the prevalent use of metal plating and alloys, EuroLux Antiques uses the term metal rather than the more specific terms copper, brass, aluminum, steel, etc. for its listings in order to avoid confusion.
In overall average condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'average condition' relative the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see quite a few 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include significant nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel, or chalkware object, significant wear to a painted surface, speckling on a mirror, crazing, wear to gilding, or manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, significant wear to a label, and original decorative trim may be missing. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be mentioned in the listing. Average condition may also include chips or cracks in ceramic or marble, which may or may not be specifically noted in the listing.
Shows significant wear and surface rust to the metal finish due to age and use.

MADONNA / MADONNA AND CHILD
Mary, called Madonna (My Lady) since the Middle Ages, was the mother of Jesus of Nazareth according to Christian tradition. Mary's most common titles include The Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady, Mother of God, and Queen of Heaven. The conception of her Son Jesus is believed to have been an act of the Holy Spirit, which fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah that a virgin would bear a son who would be called Immanuel (God with Us).
Upon her death, she was assumed bodily into Heaven as she was specially favored by God's grace.
Mary, as Mother of God, is the ultimate symbol of the love between mother and child and is also recognized as the Mother of the Catholic Church. Her veneration has grown based upon writings of saints and through apparitions of the Virgin, such as in Lourdes, Beauraing, and Fatima.

Religion is often described as a communal system for the coherence of belief focusing on a system of thought, unseen being, person, or object that is considered sacred, divine, or of the highest truth. The Christian religion is centered on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God.
Christianity has played a prominent role in shaping Western civilization since the 4th century. Currently Christianity has between 1.5 billion and 2.1 billion followers, representing about a quarter to a third of the world's population. With more than 1 billion members, the Roman Catholic Church is the largest church representing over half of all Christians and one sixth of the world's population.
The Fine Print
Because EuroLux Antiques maintains its own website and lists on other online sites, while also operating a physical store location in Newberry, South Carolina, we reserve the right to end any listing early if it has not been purchased outright or no bids have been placed upon the item. On occasion, a piece listed on a website may no longer be available. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of our inventory records but we often have customers interested in the same item at the same time. In those cases, we defer to the customer who placed the earlier order. We apologize in advance by any inconvenience this may cause. Because of this, we encourage all of our buyers to purchase the item as quickly as possible so that your treasured find doesn't sell elsewhere to someone else. Happy browsing and thanks!
