This is a marvellous antique carved ivory panel, most probably late 19th century Dieppe, featuring a crisply carved scene of an angel in flight above a European town. She is clasping a sleeping child in her arms against a star studded night sky complete with crescent moon, all within a raised and moulded border. This scene has been expertly carved in minute detail and is as crisp as the day it was created. If you hold the panel up to the light it is like a cameo with the angel and town highlighted against the translucent background. It is simply amazing. Measuring 10.5cm tall by 6.8cm wide and just 0.5cm thick.
