Antique Saint Vincent Ferrer, San Vicente Religious Carving, Santo, Statuette, 100 Years Old

Title: Antique Saint Vincent Ferrer, San Vicente Religious Carving, Santo, Statuette, 100 Years Old
Description: Popular throughout the Philippine Islands, the only country in Asia with a predominant Christian population, these carvings or santos as they are locally called can be found in many homes. While santos are widespread throughout the country, older examples such as this one are increasingly harder to come by. This carving of the beloved St. Vincent of Ferrer is done in the popular folk style. Carved from a single piece of wood and mounted on a simple base. Remnants of the saint’s wings can still be seen at the reverse side. A piece of rubber, which looks to be a past attempt at repair, can also be seen attached to the wings. An overall lovely, older piece as evident in its patina. Perfect as a decorative element for your home or as an addition to any antique collection.
Measurement: It measures 11 inches in height (including the base) and 3.5 inches across.
Condition: In Good Condition
Weight: Item weighs approximately 250 grams
