Jesus Round Plaque Statue Plaster Chalkware Crown Of Thorns - $40 (Erie)
QR Code Link to This Post
For sale is one round plaque of the head and face of Jesus bearing the crown of thorns. There is no manufacturer/artist information on the back, or inscription of any kind. I believe it to be made of plaster as it is pretty solid. There is no missing material and the hanger is secure.
The paint job is not perfect, with some areas showing wear. See photos. Without up-close examination, I believe you could hang it and enjoy it in its present condition.
I can only trace this item back to the 1960's, as the person who gave it to me said it had hung in her home in her childhood.
If you search the Orlandini Studio in Milwaukee, WI., you will see that they produce an identical item, unpainted and costing $109. They also produce a companion plaque of the Virgin Mary of the same size, color and cost. As they've been in business since 1936, perhaps mine was from their studio sixty years ago?
The plaque is about 13" in diameter, about 5 ½ " thick, and weighs just over five pounds.
Accepting cash only. I live in Erie and will happily meet with you at the Millcreek Mall.
