Saint Mary Magdalene by H (Guy) Manning c 1948

A plaster statue of Saint Mary Magdalene holding a jar of ointment has been covered with a mother-of-pearl-like plastic coating and ornamented with small jewels. The base is decorated with two courses of pearls and one of diamonds. Condition is good although the hand holding the jar has been repaired and there are some minor chips and some jewels are missing from the base. The figure stands in a box with one glass remaining in the back which has been ornamented with gold paper and on a wooden base which has been gessoed and gilded, but has many chips. There is a silver paper plaque on the front with the inscription in French: Ste Marie Madeleine by H Manning. At the base of the figure is the artist's signature and the date, 1948. Height of figure with base is 11". Box and wooden base are 13" high by 8" square.
