DESCRIPTION - Beautiful Lenci style ceramic Madonna "Mater Dullis" made by La Igni, Torino, Italy. La Igni was in operation in the 1930's and was founded by Nello Franchini, on of the founders of Essevi. They were contemporaries of the Lenci factory & many of the artisans executed their designs. Known for their bold art deco modern designs this Madonna is an excellent example. Signed on back with Igni mark and Torino.
The Madonnas headscarf is a marvel of artistry. The colors and the depth of the stunning pattern is so much better in person than the pictures can possibly convey. She is in excellent condition other than for a small nose rub at the very tip of the nose (see pictures) that does very little to detract and could be easily restored as it is such a small spot. A RARE offering for the serious collector.
Also Rare & not often seen. Please take a peek if interested. The item "Lenci style Madonna by Igni 1930's Mater Dullis Art Deco Stunning!
